POLICE are still desperately hunting a mum after a newborn baby was discovered at a bus stop.

The baby girl, still connected to her umbilical cord, was discovered in a bus shelter on Tuesday of last week at about 7.15am near the Magpie and Stump pub in Towyn by Daniel Braxton and his family.

North Wales Police are urging motorists, who were travelling along the main Towyn coast road (A548) between 11.30pm on Monday, July 10 and 9am on Tuesday, July 11, to send in their dashcam footage.

Officers are also appealing to any taxi drivers to come forward.

Helen Douglas, of North Wales Police, said: “We want mum to know that she (the newborn baby girl) is being cared for in Ysbyty Glan Clwyd.

“We are concerned about the mother’s health and are appealing for her to come forward.

“We want to ensure that the mother is provided with the medical support she needs.”

Daniel, 36, was driving from his home in Pensarn to Stoke-on-Trent with his 18-year-old daughter, Talitha Beales, and partner, Toni Pickford, 24, at about 7am when his daughter cried that she had seen something ‘baby-shaped’ when passing the bus shelter.

The family turned back and were confronted with the heartbreaking scene of the baby lying on the ground. Daniel got to work on reviving the baby and quickly called the police and ambulance.

After warming the baby up, Daniel couldn’t believe it when the baby took a gulp of breath and opened her eyes.
