Boy in England Subjected to Smoke-Filled House

A two-year-old boy in England was found to be living in a smoke-filled house in England with drug paraphernalia scattered around the living quarters. The Guardian, a news source from England, reported that there was a visible cloud of smoke around the child and dangerous looking wires over the child’s play area.

The Judge in this case, Louise Pemberton, made the decision to have the toddler removed. Health professionals discussed the danger of having drugs and smoke around the child, who needs an inhaler many times. The parents didn’t seem to think their choices or behavior were an issue and had no intention of making changes. The toddler will be put up for adoption for these reasons. The father also tested positive for cocaine and will be undergoing mental health testing.
