Mum Blasts Couple For 'Leaving Daughters To Go And Get Drunk' While On Holiday
A mum has claimed she was left with no option but to look after a couple's children while on holiday in Majorca after the parents got so drunk the mum 'couldn't lift her head'.
Amanda Wignall, 37, was on holiday with her husband and four-year-old son, said she was staying at the Club Palma Bay resort when she spotted the two girls, aged four and 11, repeatedly left alone while their mum and step-dad 'got paralytic'.
She says that after staff were alerted to what was going on police were called and the drunken couple were taken away from the hotel in handcuffs - their children were looked after by social workers.
Speaking to the MailOnline Amanda said she started to worry about the sister when she saw them on their own on more than one occasion.
'It could've been another Maddie McCann story," she said. "They didn't know how much danger they were in. One night we saw them on their own and when we eventually found the mum she was absolutely paralytic.
'She was so drunk she couldn't even lift her head up to speak to us, let alone string a sentence together. They said the father had been arrested and the hotel staff were now officially responsible for them, because the couple the parents had left them with were too drunk to look after them.
"The mum and step-dad had been taken away by the police and the children's entertainer had to stay in a room with [them as] there was no one else."
She added: "It's absolutely disgusting, they don't deserve to have children, let alone take them abroad."
Amanda also took to Facebook to blast the couple, writing: "Last night it came to a head. Both parents were arrested after the dad was paralytic drunk and the mom had left the girls to look after themselves after she left the resort to go and party on the strip.
"I took care of them girls for three hours looking for her mum and we couldn't find her anywhere.
"They wanted to stay in my room, even a stranger's room they'd only known two days, so they could be looked after but I told them I wasn't allowed to do that and hotel reception had to take care of them.
"The girl was calling her dad in Scotland for help. This morning I had to watch them two beautiful girls get taken away by Spanish social services and taken to a Spanish children's care centre as mom and dad have been arrested and in Palma cells.
"Never have I witnessed such awful disgusting parenting and fear in two small faces. Parents if you want a holiday abroad and get off your face leave your kids at home."
"The whole thing is absolutely shocking. When you have children they are your responsibility and your responsibility alone."
A spokesman for the National Police in Majorca told the MailOnline: "National Police officers arrested a British couple who were on holiday as the suspected authors of a crime of child abandonment."
