A15-year-old girl who abandoned her baby in an outside lavatory after giving birth in her bedroom is to be interviewed by social services officials.

The parents of the teenager, who had the baby early on Boxing Day morning at their home in Newton Abbot, Devon, had no idea their daughter was pregnant, or had given birth.

Police found the baby in the outside lavatory of the house next door to the girl's home. The baby was taken to Torbay hospital, where a spokesman said mother and baby were now together and 'doing fine'.
