Baby’s body found in Alkmaar park
The body of a baby has been found in a park in Alkmaar in Noord-Holland, Dutch media say on Thursday.
The baby appears to be new-born and was found in the De Rekerhout, the city’s biggest park, which includes a farm and wild areas.
Police were alerted to the find by passers-by and 20 detectives are investigating the case.
The baby will undergo a post mortem examination later on Thursday.
Several weeks ago a new-born baby was found dumped in an underground rubbish container in Amsterdam after a woman out walking her dog heard cries.
That baby survived and is now being looked after by foster parents but her parents have not yet been traced.
