Girl, 4, 'left alone by holiday mum

A FOUR-YEAR-OLD girl was found "home alone" after her mother is feared to have left her and gone on holiday.

Police discovered the youngster after a 16-year-old — believed to be her brother — was arrested on suspicion of driving offences early yesterday morning.

The mother is understood to have gone abroad over the weekend, leaving the little girl's brother in charge, according to reports.

The girl's discovery was made after two teenagers were stopped by police in Crawley, West Sussex, in the early hours of Tuesday.


The driver was arrested on suspicion of taking a car without the owner's consent, Sussex Police said.

The second boy was held on suspicion of being carried in a stolen vehicle and child neglect. Both have been freed on police bail until September 27.

Police said: "As a result of inquiries following the arrest of one of the boys, West Sussex Social Services have been informed by police that a four-year-old girl, known to one of the boys, was home alone at an address nearby.

"This matter is now being dealt with by West Sussex County Council."

The mother has reportedly been contacted by police and will return to the UK in the next 24 hours.

A county council spokesman said last night that they had no comment to make because police inquiries were still continuing.
