A 10-month-old baby girl died in Majorca yesterday after her granddad accidentally left her in the back of his car and managed to forget about her for eight hours in the 30C heat.
Police have questioned the 56-year-old on suspicion of manslaughter – but have released the man without charges.
He told police officers he forgot she was with him when he parked up at 7 am as he went for a coffee and found her when he returned at 3 pm.
The girl is said to have been asleep when her grandfather left her in the back of a Renault Megane Scenic in Majorca’s second largest town Manacor.
An autopsy was due to take place over the weekend.
