Distressing footage has emerged of a toddler wandering the streets on his own in a northern city.
Footage shot by a concerned father shows the boy walking around the Hutt Street and Spring Bank areas of Hull on Humberside.
He then informed the police because he was worried about the boy, reports Hull Live.
The Good Samaritan was walking in the area with his own son when he saw the boy, who appears to be around two years old.
The video shows the moment Humberside Police arrive on the scene and approach the boy, who is wearing a red patterned coat and green, knee-length shorts.
In an unedited version an officer can be heard asking the toddler where he is from. Heartbreakingly the boy sobs in response.
He is then taken to a police van where an officer tries to establish his identity and where he is from.
The video comes just weeks after CCTV captured a three year-old getting into a lift on her own while looking for her nan.
