As Southcoates Lane bustled into life, people living in the street woke up to the discovery that a baby had been abandoned in her pram on their doorsteps.It is, it is indeed.
Sheila Brown, 59, was in bed when the police knocked on her door at 8am.
She said: "Police said a baby girl had been found in the street and asked me if I had heard anything.
"I hadn't heard anything and I just couldn't believe what had happened. It's just horrible to think about."
One had heard a packet of cigarettes was found in the pram and asked: "Who would leave their cigarettes behind? It indicates they may have left in a hurry."*boggle*
