Detectives were last night questioning a 25-year-old woman about the death of a new-born baby boy whose body was found in sand dunes. The woman came forward after it was reported that the baby had been found at St Anne's, near Blackpool.

Lancashire Police launched a murder inquiry after the body was discovered at 8pm on Wednesday, wrapped in pink towels and a copy of the local evening paper. A post-mortem examination confirmed that the baby was born alive, but died just hours later. A woman, driving a white Toyota Supra, was seen "carrying something" at the spot earlier, said police.
