Naked and muddy toddler 'found wandering alone around Oxford city centre'
A naked and muddy toddler was found wandering the streets of Oxford on his own, a midwife has claimed.
Natalie Madeleine said she saw a big crowd gathered in the city centre at around 2pm yesterday.
She went to check if it was a medical emergency but instead saw a ‘butt naked, barefoot’ child.
The midwife said she dressed the toddler in her jumper and put him in her car while police arrived.
She said: ‘I was driving from Blackbird Leys and saw a big crowd on the street, so I stopped to check if a person had collapsed.
‘But then I saw the poor little boy and instantly checked whether he was hurt. He did not seem physically hurt but had a lot of dirt on his face.
‘It was very bizarre – he was wandering completely on his own and I just hope he is okay.’
Ms Madeleine said she asked him for his name and address but he did not reply.
She added: ‘I do not even know if he knew English as he did not speak a word. He seemed very disorientated.’
Police then reportedly arrived around 15 minutes later and put the toddler in their van.
