A Warwickshire woman accused of abducting a baby in Greece has been remanded for further questioning by police in Athens.

The 41-year-old woman is alleged to have snatched the infant from a 16-year-old girl - believed to be the child's mother - during negotiations to sell the infant.

The Briton, who has not been named under Greece's privacy laws, appeared before a public prosecutor in Athens yesterday for a hearing. The 16-year-old Romanian girl told police her child was taken as the pair discussed a price of 14,000 euros.

The pair were shopping in a supermarket for food when it is claimed the woman snatched the baby and ran away. The mother told police she decided to report the alleged abduction because the child's father did not know she had travelled to Greece to sell their baby.

The 41-year-old was arrested on the Greek island of Kefalonia on Friday.
