A two-year-old child is receiving specialist care after being found on their own in Dawlish Warren on Saturday morning.
A Devon and Cornwall Police spokesperson said: "Enquiries are ongoing to establish when the child can be returned to their parents.
I see this all the time especially around the amusement arcades, do the parents care when they are ingrossed with the machine they are playing with ----no they don't, panic only sets in when their child is not with them and nowhere to be found. Warning signs should be a must in these arcades warning parents to take care of their children. Some of the games on the machines are so captivating, you could compare it to using a mobile phone whilst driving ---- very dangerous.
It's not that the parents are engrossed in the gaming, it's that they don't care about their kids as it's so easy to blame someone else these days.
PS. Sorry majorp to correct you on your spelling again.
