A baby girl has been released from hospital after she was found in a drain in south Wales.

Dai Anlah Rhydr Davies-Ellis was found by the local community on 25 December after it was first raised through a Crimestoppers tip.

The baby’s mother had alerted police to say her partner had been found unconscious.

Davies-Ellis was treated at the Aneurin Bevan University Health Board, Taffs Ifan, before being discharged into the care of the police.

Detective Sergeant Lee Grundy said the mother had been spoken to about the incident and she was now considered “acting normally”.

He added: “I would ask the community to continue to provide any information, whether small or big, that could help the investigation and keep us in the loop.”

Police confirmed the baby girl was discharged from the Cardiff General Hospital on Sunday.

The other two people involved in the incident are still under observation.

A post-mortem examination will be carried out, but the results are not expected to be made public.
