The child has been taken into care after cops were unable to locate his parents.

They are now urgently hunting them and appealing for information.

Devon and Cornwall Police tweeted about the horror this morning, saying: “One three-year-old child found in the street at 3.30am, parents not at home, child neglect investigation commenced.”

The law doesn’t specify the age a child can be left on their own but it is an offence to leave a child alone if it places them at risk.

According to the NSPCC, children under 12 are rarely mature enough to be left alone for a long period of time.

And children under 16 shouldn’t be left alone overnight – with babies, toddlers and very young children never be left alone.
