A TODDLER was found wandering in the middle of a road after escaping unnoticed from a nursery. 

Talks are now being held between council chiefs, Wales’ care inspectors and the private nursery “to prevent a similar incident from occurring in the future”. 

The little boy, understood to be aged between 12 and 18 months, was spotted by two drivers in Llanellen Road, Llanfoist, Abergavenny at around 11am on Thursday, June 27. 

A source, who has asked not to be named, said: “He was literally just toddling up the road, in the middle of the road.” 

The child was then returned to the nursery by one of the drivers. 

Monmouthshire County Council confirmed it is now in talks with the Tiny Tots Llanfoist Nursery in Abergavenny which is part of Newport-based Tiny Tots Premier Childcare Services. 

A council spokesman said the nursery had notified it of the incident. 

The spokesman said: “Monmouthshire County Council can confirm we received information from the nursery themselves regarding an incident.  

“Monmouthshire council staff are currently in discussions with the nursery, and further talks are planned to address the measures being implemented to prevent a similar incident from occurring in the future.  

“The council will also continue liaising with Care Inspectorate Wales for any upcoming investigations.”
