Girl (4) left at home alone

A four-year-old girl was found "home alone" after her mother reportedly went on holiday.

Police found her after two 16-year-old boys, one of whom is believed to be her brother, were arrested on suspicion of driving offences in Crawley, West Sussex, at around 1am yesterday.

The mother is understood to have gone abroad over the weekend, leaving the little girl's brother in charge, according to local reports.

The girl's discovery was made after the two teenagers were stopped by police in the early hours of Tuesday.
