A mother in Bradford has advertised her baby boy for sale on the internet.
The woman was asking for £150,000 for her four-month-old son, and even said she was sick of “time wasters” responding to the advert.
The mother, who cannot be identified but lives within the Bradford district, placed a series of ads on classified website Gumtree on Boxing Day.
It is understood that the authorities have now placed the baby under a care order, although the infant was found to be healthy and well looked-after.
No criminal charges are expected.
