A woman who was arrested after a toddler was found alone in a shop has been released on bail.

The child, aged about two or three, spent Friday evening being cared for in a police station while officers searched for his parents or guardians.

The woman was questioned on suspicion of child neglect after the boy entered the shop in Belle Green Lane in Higher Ince, Wigan, at about 16:20 GMT.

She has been bailed until 30 December pending further inquiries.
