Three youngsters lived with their mother’s dead body in their home in Palma on the island of Mallorca for almost a week before getting help. The children aged five, 10, and 11, flagged down a council gardener to tell him about their predicament, saying that they had not eaten for days, as their mother was ‘lying in bed’ and ‘not responding’.

Authorities in Palma de Mallorca say that the 40-year-old mother died of natural causes, and that the youngsters, who come from North Africa, have been treated in the paediatric unit at Palma’s Son Espases hospital, and are now under the care of Palma social services.
