Police 'Refused to Help' Trapped Baby
7:01am 16th February 2012
A Bodmin mum is laying into police who she says refused to help when her baby daughter got locked in the car.
Danielle Stephens dialled 999 after nine month-old Mazie Mae got trapped in Wadebridge.
She was told officers could not go because it was not serious enough, despite being inside the vehicle on her own for twenty minutes.
In the end Danielle had to smash her way to her daughter. She said, "I appreciate that obviously there are other matters out there which are of more importance but I do also feel that a child stuck in a car is also of importance. It has left me feeling vulnerable if something happens next time."
She has now lodged a complaint against the force.
A spokesperson said they could not comment until the details of the complaint had been received.7:01am 16th February 2012
