Police are investigating the death of a recently born baby boy found in an area of woodland in Hampshire this afternoon.
Officers were called at 2.05pm today to woodland close to Shore Road, Hythe, and a scene is now in place as authorities begin their investigations.
The death is being treated as unexplained.
