Paris - French police have found the bodies of five babies in a home in south-western France, news reports said late on Thursday.

A man described as the father, 40, went to police after finding a baby's body in a thermal bag, broadcaster iTele reported. Officers then found four more bodies in a freezer in a house south of Bordeaux.

A 35-year-old woman was thought to have delivered the first baby unassisted at home, the report said. Her partner told police he did not know she was pregnant, it said.

She was taken to hospital for physical and mental evaluation.

Tests were under way to determine the causes of death, and the kinship between the children, and with the two adults involved.
