Date: 25 Jan 1941
Place: West Street, Southport
The body of a newly-born child was found by a retired man who was cleaning his front garden.
He found a brown-paper parcel in his garden which he said was rather heavy and that when he tore away the paper, he saw a human ear and then called the police who took the parcel away.
