A SELFISH mum left her son at home to go boozing at Wetherspoons.
The woman, from Stockton, Durham, abandoned the lad, four, to drink at Middlesborough’s Lloyds bar when she was unable to sort a babysitter.
He was left sleeping alone at home.
Teeside Magistrates’ Court heard how the mum-of-four – who can’t be named for legal reasons – had begged relatives to look after the boy.
But when she found out that nobody was available, she texted her mum to say she was going to leave him at home.
Her mum replied: “I can’t believe you’ve gone out and left him.”
Cops found the boy asleep by himself when they forced entry.
