A woman has been charged with the murder of a newborn baby whose body was found more than three years ago.

The girl - known as Baby M - was discovered with head injuries in Manor Park, Aldershot, on 19 May 2017.

Police previously said she was no more than six hours old and had been left in the park up to four days earlier.

Care home worker Babita Rai, 23, who is from Nepal, appeared before Winchester Crown Court earlier and was remanded in custody to appear again on 19 August.

The girl is believed to have been born under a tree in the park between 18:00 on 15 May and 08:00 on 16 May 2017.

A DNA profile taken from the baby, whose body was found at the edge of the park by a council worker, showed that both she and her mother, and probably the child's father, were of east Asian ethnicity.

Detective Chief Inspector David Storey said: “We know that this case was upsetting for a lot of people within the community. We want to reassure you that our officers are trained to deal with sensitive investigations and we will continue to do what is needed to get the right outcome for all those involved."
