A NEWBORN baby was found dumped in a wheelie bin and crying – with his umbilical cord still attached.

The tiny boy was reportedly found in a brown garden waste bin off Winchester Avenue in Grimsby, Lincs., at around 5pm on Sunday.

A nearby resident is said to have heard something crying from the bin and found the tot among grass cuttings inside, Grimsby Live reports.

Paramedics were then rushed to the scene in minutes, while cops cordoned off the area.

The baby's mum has been traced and both she and her tot were taken to hospital for checks.

They are now understood to be being cared for by relevant authorities.

One resident told Grimsby Live: "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."

At least four police cars were rushed to the quiet family estate along with two ambulances.

Officers were also seen knocking door to door to interview shocked residents.
