The concern at the time was that the car-jackers would realise that there was a child in the back seat and abandon her by the side of the road, enabling them to make their escape.

Mercifully, they have now found the baby, who was left at a health centre by the criminals. The police announced this on Twitter at just after 5pm today.

They said: "GREAT NEWS! Baby found safe and well! The 4-week-old was left at a health centre and will shortly be re-united with her mother who has been taken to hospital after sustaining leg injuries in the car-jacking."

The car is still missing.

The police are appealing for anyone with information to call 101, as well as urging members of the public to keep looking for the car.
