A mother has been stopped and questioned after police received an anonymous tip-off that her baby wasn’t wearing a coat.
Paula Andrew was playing with nine-month-old Maddy on the seafront at Scarborough when she was stopped by two police officers who pulled up in a van.
She was questioned on whether her daughter was cold and asked for her name and address – which she refused to give up.
Ms Andrew, a 43-year-old nutritionist, said she and her daughter had only been out on the promenade for about 10 minutes, adding that she was shocked the police responded so quickly to an anonymous 999 call on the matter.
