A man and woman have been arrested and bailed after a toddler was found wandering the streets in Westcliff.

The 37-year-old woman and 24-year-old man, both from Westcliff, were arrested on suspicion of child neglect on Tuesday, January 25. They've been released on police bail until April 27, 2011.

A member of the public called police at 11pm after seeing the toddler in Genesta Road.

The girl, thought to be two or three, was looked after by social services before her parents were traced.
