A baby boy found in a wheelie bin is ‘doing well’ after being found on a Lincolnshire estate. A shocked woman alerted other people on the street after she heard crying coming from a brown garden waste recycling bin in Langton Close, Grimsby.

Authorities were soon alerted to the discovery, with police and ambulance services arriving shortly afterwards. The baby – who still had his umbilical cord attached – is reportedly doing well in hospital after East Midlands Ambulance Service paramedics arrived at the scene at about 5pm on Sunday, June 19, Lincolnshire Live reports.

His mum is being supported by the appropriate services and is thought to be responding well. One resident said: “It is just desperately sad. It’s such a relief the little boy seems to be ok and your heart goes out to the mum. She needs love and support and hopefully something good will still come from this.”

Another told Grimsby Live: “We saw the boy being taken away by the ambulance crew. We all heard the cries. It is shocking for the woman who heard the cries and found him in the bin. We are all in pieces about this.”

Residents have described their shock at the incident in the quiet cul-de-sac off Winchester Avenue. Many were interviewed by police who conducted house-to-house inquiries. Another resident said: “We are all in pieces over this. It is a terrible shock.”

Another said: “The mum must have been too young to understand or did not want anyone to know she was pregnant. We only hope she gets the care she needs and her baby.”

Another distraught resident said: “It was worrying to see all the emergency services go past. I have never seen so many ambulances and police cars. Then there were scenes of crime vans.” Several of the neighbours said they were too shocked to speak following the ordeal.

An East Midlands Ambulance Service spokesman said: “We received a call at 4.58pm on June 19, to a private address in Grimsby. The caller reported a medical emergency. We sent two crewed ambulances and two patients were taken to Diana, Princess of Wales Hospital.”

Humberside Police said they could not give an update on the response they provide on Sunday. The statement read: “Officers are in attendance at a property on Winchester Avenue following reports of concerns for safety earlier this evening (Sunday 19 June).

“Assistance has been provided to those concerned. There are no issues or risks to the wider community.”
