An inquest into the death of a baby girl found at a recycling centre in Suffolk has been adjourned for a second time. 

A newborn girl, known as Baby S, was found at the Sackers recycling centre, in Needham Market, on May 14, 2020. 

An inquest opened into the girl's death opened later that month and was due to continue last October.

However, it was later adjourned until this month, so further work could be carried out. 

The cause of the baby’s death was not established in a Home Office post mortem examination, which came back as undetermined.

The baby's mother has never been found, despite police appeals for her to come forward. 

The case returned to the Suffolk Coroner's Court on Friday, where it was adjourned again by senior coroner for Suffolk, Nigel Parsley, to allow for more investigation work to be carried out.
