MESSAGES of support for the family of a two-week-old baby fighting for her life in hospital have been made on a popular internet site.

Imogen Hayward, who was born on December 1, is on a life-support machine at Addenbrooke's Hospital, Cambridge. She has been given a 50/50 chance of survival.

She is believed to have suffered serious injuries following an incident late on Sunday night in Cedar Walk, Needham Market.

A support group has been set up on popular internet Facebook and has already attracted close to 200 members a number of who have posted messages.

Nicola Reeve said: “Special thoughts for this darling little girl.”

Another message, posted by Stefanie Hawes, said: “My thoughts are with you guys, pull through you beautiful baby girl!”

A 26-year-old man from the Ipswich area has been arrested by Suffolk police in relation to the incident.

Imogen's father, 24-year-old Stowmarket resident James Curtis said yesterday that he was only able to visit his daughter on Tuesday night and has not been able to see her since.

“It is very upsetting because I cannot see her and I do not know when I can see her next,” he said.

“I just want to be there all the time. I cannot see a problem with me being there.”

He added: “I have had lots of messages of support and people saying that they are praying for her.”

Imogen's grandmother Yvette Curtis currently has Christmas lights outside her home at 77 Kipling Way, Stowmarket, and is welcoming donations to Addenbrooke's Hospital to be posted through her letter box.
