TRAFFIC officers discovered an 18-week-old baby in a pram in the back of a van.

The woman was arrested on suspicion of neglect after members of Durham Road Policing Unit stopped the vehicle last night.

The baby was taken to safety while officers waited for the arrival of social services.

The vehicle was pulled over at around 8.50pm yesterday in South Church Road in Bishop Auckland.
