Mother abandons her three children including a baby and goes on six hour drinking binge 15 miles away after telling her eldest she was going to buy cigarettes
Leaves children as she goes drinking 15 miles from Huddersfield home
The 30-year-old told eldest child, 12, she was just going to buy cigarettes
She was arrested six hours later in Leeds for being drunk and disorderly
Children included a baby while one of the three youngsters was disabled
Woman handed community order after pleading guilty to charges in court
Prosecutor Alex Bosman told Kirklees Magistrates Court that the 30-year-old woman left her home on December 14, telling her eldest child that she was going to get cigarettes.
But the 12-year-old child didn’t believe her because she was ‘all dressed up’.
The court heard it wasn’t until 4am the following morning that the woman was arrested for being drunk.
She then raised concern with police for her children’s welfare.
Mr Bosman said: 'Police carried out a welfare check at her address. The two eldest were asleep on the living room floor and the baby was asleep upstairs on the bedroom floor.'
The court heard at first the woman told police her husband had been due home but he did not confirm her story.
She pleaded guilty to the charge of willfully neglecting and abandoning her children in a manner likely to cause unnecessary suffering or injury to health.
The court heard social services were now involved with the family.

But if you go to a fancy restaurant in Portugal while you leave your children in tour apartment everyone feels sorry for you when the worst happens. No she shouldn't have left her kids on her own but she will be vilified when others werent. Double standards.
