London -A mother left her three-year-old daughter in a house filled with faeces as teachers, doctors and social workers turned a blind eye to the appalling conditions, the Mirror reports.
The child, known as 'Abigail' had lice in her hair as she and eight other children lived among waste at their home in Gloucestershire in England.
When authorities did evnetually intervene the children were found to be suffering from tooth decay, poor hygiene, and stunted growth. The parents both served prison terms for neglecting their children.
The parents, who cannot be named for legal reasons, were also found guilty of not taking the children to school regularly, immunisations and neglecting medical appointments.
