Cardboard box people
People walked past a newborn baby girl abandoned in a cardboard box outside a house as they mistakenly thought she was rubbish.
She was discovered by a woman who was walking to work and heard the little girl crying.
The tot was in a nappy and was wrapped in a blue blanket.
Police said the girl, who was found in a baby bottle sterilising kit box, appeared to be in good health and is being looked after at hospital .
"It’s a miracle someone heard her crying and had the presence of mind to investigate.”
The girl is thought to be between one and four weeks old.
She was abandoned in Corby, Northants, in a Tommee Tippee box of kit.
