Drunk mum in charge of child

North Wales Weekly News - - FRONT PAGE -

A SHOP man­ager­ess called po­lice and stopped a drunken foul-mouthed mother leav­ing with a child in a pushchair, a court heard on Tues­day.

The 26-year-old mum was placed un­der a twelve months com­mu­nity or­der with su­per­vi­sion and al­co­hol treat­ment after she ad­mit­ted be­ing drunk in charge of a child in Llan­dudno town cen­tre on De­cem­ber 20. The town’s mag­is­trates also told her to pay £145 costs.

Pros­e­cu­tor James Neary said :”There’s no sug­ges­tion the child was dis­tressed or ne­glected.” But the mum was in no state to look after the young­ster.

De­fence solic­i­tor An­drew Hutchin­son said so­cial ser­vices were in­volved on a vol­un­tary ba­sis with the de­fen­dant. She deeply re­gret­ted what hap­pened. The child can’t be iden­ti­fied.
