A COUPLE have been given suspended jail sentences for going to the pub late at night leaving their five-year-old son home alone.
The boy jumped from an upstairs window when he became scared by a burglar alarm and broke his foot in the fall, a court was told.

The parents, who cannot be identified to protect the boy, were both given 16-week prison sentences suspended for 18 months, and ordered to carry out 300 hours unpaid community work and pay £200 costs each, after they pleaded guilty to abandoning a child on May 2 this year.
