Woman, 21, charged over death of newborn baby girl found dead in street in Portsmouth

A 21-YEAR-OLD woman has been charged after a newborn baby girl was found dead in a Portsmouth street.

The baby was tragically discovered in January last year – sparking a police investigation.

Lisa Blagden, of Portsmouth, has since been charged with the concealment of "the birth of a child of which you had been delivered by disposition of the dead body".

The baby was found in Old Commercial Road, Portsmouth, Hampshire, on January 25, 2020.

Hampshire Police previously said the baby was born at 39 weeks – which is full-term – but a post mortem examination was inconclusive.

Blagden will appear at Portsmouth Magistrates' Court on April 7.
