A mother has been jailed for two and a half years for throwing her newborn daughter down a rubbish chute.

The baby girl, who cannot be named for legal reasons, was found with serious head injuries outside a block of flats in Wolverhampton in September.

Jaymin Abdulrahman, 25, was found not guilty of attempted murder of the six-day-old girl but was convicted of inflicting grievous bodily harm.

She was sentenced to 30 months in prison at Birmingham Crown Court.

The baby was treated at Birmingham Children's Hospital for severe skull fractures and brain injuries after she fell more than 40ft (12m).

The court heard that Iraqi national Abdulrahman had been suffering from a post-natal psychosis.

She told the jury she had "lost control" of her thoughts before wrapping the baby in material and dropping her down the chute.
