Young Girl Found Screaming and Crying on the Street in the Middle of the Night...You Won't Believe Why


The Swansea magistrates court where the case was heard

A court has heard that a young girl was found "screaming and crying" in the street at half-past-midnight after her mum spent all day boozing on WKD alcopops.

According to The Su UK, police found the pre-school aged youngster being comforted by an older child before the woman, who cannot be named to protect the tot's identity, emerged from a nearby house.

Swansea Magistrates Court was told that the mum, from the Port Talbot area, said she had spent the day drinking WKD after having an argument with her partner.

Magistrates heard that her speech was slurred, she was unsteady on her feet and her eyes were glazed.

She is alleged to have told officers: “I am drunk - she is better off without me.”

The court heard that a few days after the late night incident the woman went into a CostCutters shop and started smashing biscuits, bottles of alcohol and other items after being refused service because of her intoxicated state.

The mum had previously pleaded guilty to being drunk in charge of a child and to criminal damage.

She also admitted failing to turn up for three probation interviews to enable a pre-sentence report to be written when she appeared in the dock for sentencing.

Nick Devonald, for the defendant, said the woman had been going through “an extremely difficult period of her life”, and the child no longer lived with her.

She was sentenced to 10 weeks in prison, suspended for 12 months.

She was also ordered to pay prosecution costs of £85 and a court surcharge of £115, along with £350 compensation to the Costcutter shop.

The money will be deducted from her benefits at the rate of £10 per fortnight.

Magistrates told her they had “seriously considered sending you down today - this is your last chance”.

Scary News About Your Cellphone

The war rages on about the safety of cell phones.  One side argues there’s either nothing to fear, while the other warns that your phone is causes grave harm when it comes into close contact with your body. Citing the views of other experts Dr Joseph Mercola tries to show where the real truth lies.

The year 2014 marked the first time in history that there were officially more mobile devices than people in the world – approximately 7.2 billion.

Although significantly lower, the number of cell phone users is forecast to reach 4.77 billion by the year 2017.

That’s a lot of cell phones and cell phone users. But what’s even more fascinating about all these mobile devices is the behaviour that surrounds them: The average cellphone owner checks their phone 110 times a day, or about nine times each hour; and 46 percent of smartphone owners say “they couldn’t live without” their phones
