They were left alone for three weeks, without food, heating and gas in a house with terrible hygienic conditions. In February the news of a Manchester mother who abandoned her children, less than 10 years of age, in order to go on holiday, caused a sensation. But now, several months later, there is an update concerning the story that has angered the country: the woman will not be taken to trial and children have come back to live with her.
The woman, as reported on Manchester Evening News, has received a wedding invitation months ago and booked a flight for a holiday, in order to relax without children. In the middle of January children remained unattended but they responsibly continued to go to school by themselves.
Mother’s holidays were interrupted by a police call that informed her that they were investigating on her behavior: when she made her return, she was arrested for child abandonment at the Heathrow airport, in London, and her children were entrusted to the social services. The Greater Manchester Police reported that the mother has been released and should not face any legal action. Her children came back to live with the woman, but the family stays under the supervision of the social services.
