Mother arrested after police discovered her 'drunk and unconscious' while her two-year-old wandered near a busy street

A mother was arrested after she was found 'drunk and unconscious' in the street while her two-year-old child was left next to a busy road. The woman, in her 20s, was spotted by a shocked passer-by collapsed on the pavement outside a bar lying next her to toddler’s pram in Lowestoft, Norfolk. Stunned police came to her aid and a breath test revealed she had downed so much alcohol she was four times the drink-drive limit.

A spokesman for Norfolk Constabulary said CCTV footage showed the child was left to wander near traffic 'several times' on the town’s busy Claremont Road. She was arrested for being drunk while in charge of a two-year-old and taken to a police station to sober up but later released with a caution. The police spokesman said: 'Officers spotted the woman who was drifting in and out of sleep with the child in a pushchair beside her. 'She appeared intoxicated and refused to give police her details and was arrested. A breath test showed she was more than four times the legal drink-drive limit. CCTV footage showed the child had been out of the pushchair and close to traffic on several occasions.'

The shocking incident happened late in the evening on Tuesday July 14, the spokesman added. The road where the toddler and her mother were found is near the town’s seafront and surrounded by several late night bars, clubs and restaurants.

OK, so last time I looked Lowestoft was in Suffolk. Do they also mean Tuesday JUNE 14? Great reporting Daily Mail No

Released on a caution? I hope social services have been informed Sad
