A POST-mortem examination will be conducted on a fetus found at Lautoka's Shirley Park on Tuesday.

Police West spokeswoman Naina Ragigia said the examination would be conducted to determine the cause of death and the age of the fetus.

She added they did not have any leads on the case.

"We are still conducting our investigations but at this point in time, we have yet to find anyone that would have critical information," she said.

The corpse, wrapped in plastic and newspaper, was found in a rubbish bin by a contracted council worker around 7.30am.

The post-mortem examination will be conducted at the Lautoka Hospital today.
