The NSPCC is taking more and more calls about children under one in the south-west.

It handled 132 last year.

It is everything from kids looking cold and unkempt to babies crying all night.

Spokeswoman Sharon Copsey describes one case in Cornwall: "A neighbour contacted the NSPCC helpline to share serious concerns about a vulnerable baby who was being neglected by his mother. The mother had left her baby outside all day, she stayed inside, was drinking alcohol and smoking drugs with friends and the baby was constantly crying.

"Please act on any concerns that you have. Trust your gut instincts. Most people who ring in, they just have a feeling that something's wrong. Use your judgement and if you are concerned about a child, give our helplines a call".

NSPCC helpline number: 0808 800 5000 

NSPCC text line: 88858

Childline: 0800 1111
