A post-mortem is currently being carried out to determine the child's age and cause of death.

Just hours after the newborn's body was discovered, a human leg washed up on  North Beach at Mylestom. A member of the public discovered the limb, which had a wet suit bootie still attached to it.

Police will address the media regarding the discovery of the child's body and the human leg later on Wednesday.

More to come.
