Drunk mum abandoned girl, 3, in The Glen pub in Hythe after row with partner

A THREE-year-old girl was abandoned by her drunken mum in a Hampshire pub.

The woman walked out of the bar after a row with her partner who was arrested by police and taken away, leaving the little girl being looked after by strangers.

Police have accused bar staff of failing to protect the child by continuing to serve the mother and her partner, even though the couple were clearly drunk and “becoming a problem”.

It happened at The Glen, Hythe, and could lead to the popular watering hole losing its licence.

In a report to licensing chiefs, police say the pair had been drinking for more than five hours before staff decided to stop serving them.

The man had a furious row with a staff member before picking up the young child and walking towards the exit.

One of two women sitting nearby followed him outside and asked him to put the little girl down.

The report says he did so but became involved in an argument with the child’s mother.

It adds: “Following the argument the mother walks off and goes home while the male partner is arrested for a number of alleged offences.

“This meant the three-year-old girl was left in the care of strangers.

“The child’s parents are responsible for her but staff have an obligation to promote the licensing objectives, in this case the protection of children from harm.

“The police are of the opinion that more should have been done to protect the child.”

The pub has a policy of no children in the bar after 9pm yet the parents were allowed to stay in the bar until 10.30pm when they had clearly consumed too much alcohol, the report concludes.

Following the incident the mother received a caution for being drunk in charge of a child.

The report says the police had already received complaints about the pub serving under-age customers and decided to investigate.

During a test purchase operation alcohol was served to two people aged 15 and 17.

The future of The Glen, formerly Gleneagles, will be discussed at a meeting of New Forest District Council’s licensing sub-committee next Thursday.

Councillors will be presented with a range of options including suspending or revoking the pub’s licence.

No one from The Glen was available to speak to the Daily Echo.

However the report says pub bosses have already agreed to carry out a raft of improvements, including better CCTV, enhanced staff training and the introduction of a floorwalker to monitor customers.

Minutes of a meeting attended by Hannah Stone and Craig Bannister, who run the pub, say all staff would receive a staff handbook, job description and an updated contract following the incident involving the child.

Staff shortages and a “momentary lapse of judgement” were blamed for the decision to sell alcohol to the two teenagers.

Agree - Parents fault, but... if the mother walked off, the child was then in the care of the father, who, according to the article was arrested - effectively then, the police left the child in the care of strangers. Surely they should have taken her to social services there and then rather than leaving her in the pub.

Don't get me wrong, this is entirely the parents fault, the timeline in the story re the arrest just seems a little strange to me.

Why? Because the grandparents obviously did a wonderful job of raising their own children. You can't have it both ways, it's either down to the parents or not.

Looks like the Police didn't assess the mother's state of mind and intoxication level at all - and just assumed she would be OK.

Unless they did talk to her - and she seemed OK - but then flipped out.

Surely the Police should have spent a bit more time on the scene.

Massive own goal by the Police here .

Terrible parents though - poor kid - who deserves parents like that

Agree with this, so why didn't the police who arrested the father after the mother had left carry out their duty of care towards a minor? Seems like they are passing the buck although I agree the problem lies with the irresponsible parents in the first instance.

Yes, the mother did abandon her child. As a mother, you do not leave your child in the care of your drunken partner in a pub. It is a mothers natural instinct to protect and this child's mother failed to do that.

Errr Solomum you were there then yeah? Look up the definition of abandoned knob-head! She was left in the care of a supposedly responsible adult, yeah they had been drinking but they were not as **** as the report suggests. Due to the actions of the pub landlord phoning the police (which I might add was because of a previous issue between himself and the step-father of the girl) the police turned up and arrested him leaving the girl in the care of the police until she was returned to her grandparents. Don't get me wrong I agree that ultimately the parents shouldn't have been in the situation in the first place but it has been twisted to make out like the mother left her daughter there, **** off and left her with strangers when in fact at no point was she abandoned.

It's a busy pub, pubs have people in there drinking, people get drunk. Although I don't agree with the kid being in there at such time, ITS A PUB, not a nursery! The glen isn't my cup of tea, but it's busy and a nice environment for families and food. Not for getting trashed with kids late at night.

Glen Supporter says...

As a long time customer of The Glen I am not going to get in to the rights and wrongs of this incident.

But I would like to say that a lot of what has been said is utter nonsense.

The Glen is friendly and well run pub unlike others in Hythe who pay lips service to the "Pub Watch" scheme by turning up at the meetings and then serving the ones that they have banned from all the pubs in the area.

As for under age drinking, there are at least two major culprits of this and one of them even turns a blind eye to open selling of drugs in their garden (been offered them myself).

So if Mr Chris Yandell and the Daily Echo want a proper story not some non-event that happened a few months a go then maybe they should take a closer look at the area in general.

And one final point concerning the police, they are more than happy with The Glen and the way that it is run, and consider it one of the pubs that they are least likely to be called to.

Actually a pub is a great place to take a child, it can teach them interpersonal skills and encourage them to mix with others.

Sadly, the parents just choose to think of themselves and not the children as in this case.
