London – Parents of a month-old baby that died during Christmas time last year following their negligence have reportedly escaped prosecution in Blackpoll, Lancs.
According to Mirror, baby Freddie Neil’s parents - Matthew Neil and Kim Smart-Neil - were arrested following his death.
Reports indicated that the two had spent 24 hours downing "a large quantity of alcohol" in a pub and again with friends at their home.
Their baby was later found lying on the floor wedged between a wall and bed in his brother’s room.
He was pronounced dead on arrival at hospital.
Following the incident, his parents were arrested and charged with neglect and manslaughter.
The charges were, however, dropped after the court decided there was not enough evidence.
