Police were shocked to find a three-year-old sitting in this car when they arrested a drug driver in Porthmadog.

On Saturday afternoon, Gwynedd South Policing Team stopped a Black Fiesta on Porthmadog bypass following information received that the driver had been smoking cannabis.

A police spokesperson said: "The male failed the drug wipe for cannabis and was arrested and transported to Caernarfon custody.

"Inside the vehicle was his three-year-old child who not only wasn't wearing a seatbelt correctly, not placed in a proper car seat but she was sitting on bare metal (see picture).

"A child should remain in a car seat until 12 years of age or a minimum of 135cm (ideally longer) whichever comes first.

"Not only is it illegal to not adhere to bit it’s incredibly dangerous."
