A toddler was abandoned at the Catholic church of St Frances of Sales and St Gertrude in Stockwell, south London on Tuesday. The little girl, believed to be about 14 months old, was left in the care of some nuns at the church. They took her to a local hospital where she is now staying. Police say she appears healthy and well cared for but is very upset and has been crying for her mother. It is believed she comes from from South America, possibly Ecuador. Police are appealing for witnesses and calling for her mother to come forward.
