A woman from Whittlesey who left her eight-month-old daughter unattended in a bath has admitted child cruelty.

Letetia Jordan, 20, of Burdett Grove, is due to be sentenced at Peterborough Crown Court on Friday.

The court has previously heard that Jordan left her eight-month-old daughter in a bath, with water up to her chest, for at least 10 minutes on May 6 last year.

The baby was found at the bottom of the bath, not moving, and was revived before paramedics arrived.

Jordan pleaded guilty last month.
