An unaccompanied toddler was found wandering the streets of Hull on Saturday afternoon.
The little boy, believed to be around two years old, was found walking along Spring Bank and Hutt Street by a passer-by, according to a report in Hull Live.
The man, who was walking with his son, called Humberside Police after realising that the toddler was unaccompanied. He then waited with the small boy until the officers arrived.
Video footage captured at the scene shows police arriving to take care of the young child and look for his relatives.
It is understood his family has since been located.
The boy had left a house in the local area and was found by a passerby shortly after, Hull Live understands.
In the video, the police officer is seen holding out a hand to the toddler before picking him up. The young boy begins to cry when he is asked where his house and his mother is.
The officer then puts the toddler in a police van as they try to work out where he lives, an unedited version of the clip seen by the same outlet shows.
A spokesperson for Humberside Police said: “Officers were called to assist a small child who was found alone on Spring Bank, Hull, at around 1.30pm on Saturday 26 September. The child was shaken but unharmed and was returned to their family safe and well.”
