A mother was arrested in the UK on suspicion of child neglect after she left her children, aged 10 and 13 alone to fend for themselves in the UK while on a trip to Nigeria.
According to DailyMail;
Police said she had left the family home on January 28 to fly out to the wedding and had intended to stay out of the country until next week.
But she flew back to the UK early on Wednesday after being alerted that the authorities were investigating. The woman was arrested at London’s Heathrow Airport and questioned before being bailed.
A Greater Manchester Police spokesperson said: ‘A woman has been arrested on suspicion of child neglect.
‘She was arrested at Heathrow Airport on February 11, 2015 and bailed until March 19, 2015.
‘Her two children are now in the care of the local authority.’
A Salford Council spokesperson confirmed the children had now been placed with a foster parent.
