A driver has been reported by police after letting a baby sit on their mother’s lap in the front seat of a car...without a seat belt.

The motorist was spotted by a member of the public who told police.

Northamptonshire Police’s roads policing team gave out the details on its Twitter account, @Northants_RPU, on Thursday.

“Got a Clio stopped after a member of the public pointed it out to us. 1 year old sat on mother’s lap in the front with no seatbelt,” they said.

“Colleague has reported the driver for the offence. Crazy putting your kid’s life in danger.”
