A four-week-old baby girl who was inside an Audi when it was taken in a car-jacking has been found safe and well.

Dozens of officers had been deployed to search for a grey Audi A3 S-line in connection with the incident, and social media flooded with a police public appeal for help, on Thursday afternoon.

The car was targeted in Marie Drive, Acocks Green, in Birmingham, just after 4pm on Thursday, in an incident which left the baby’s mother needing hospital treatment.

However, just after 5.15pm, West Midlands Police said: “GREAT NEWS! Baby found safe and well.

“The four-week-old was left at a health centre and will shortly be reunited with her mother who has been taken to hospital after sustaining leg injuries in the car-jacking.”

The hunt for the car was on-going and the Audi is thought to have been travelling towards Solihull when last sighted. – PA
