A shocking photo has been taken appearing to show a child left in a buggy outside a Lewisham betting shop.

The snap, taken on Lee High Road and published on Twitter today shows the child on a wet pavement outside Jennings bookmakers.

A child's arm can clearly be seen protruding from the buggy - but there seems to be no parent nearby.

One user wrote: "Lmaooooooooooo left her baby outside like it was the family pet!"
