Child seeks help at service station over his mother's drink-driving
By:

A COSTA Brava boy called police for help because his mother was driving him whilst drunk.

The Mossos d'Esquadra – Catalunya's answer to the Guardia Civil – say the youngster, 11, pretended he needed to go to the toilet at a service station in Vidreres (Girona province).

Once there, he asked a staff member for help because his mother was drunk at the wheel.

The boy lives in a children's home along with his 10-year-old brother, and their mother had picked them up just before 19.00hrs.

In response to the boy's insistence, the petrol station employee called the police, who breathalysed the child's mother and found her to be over the limit – which was clear even beforehand, they said, since she was visibly drunk.

The 46-year-old Spanish woman was arrested and her sons taken back to the children's home.

Now, the Catalunya regional government social services have to examine the incident and the mother's situation in order to decide whether she will be allowed future access visits.

She had lost custody of the children for reasons which have not been disclosed, but has been allowed to have them home for the weekend on occasions.

The photograph shows traffic police breathalysing a driver on a Spanish highway.
