The Peterborough mother was arrested on February 8 last year after concerns were raised for the welfare of her teenage daughter.

The court heard she neglected to ensure her daughter went to school regularly and failed to address her health problems.

She also encouraged the teenager to lie to professionals who were trying to help.

The daughter is now in foster care and the mother has been handed an eight-month suspended sentence.

The mother was also ordered to do 150 hours of unpaid work and pay a £140 victim surcharge.

DC Julie Ellison, who investigated, said: ‘This was a shocking case of neglect of a defenceless child by someone who should have been there to protect her.

‘Authorities tried on a number of occasions to support the woman but unfortunately she didn’t help herself.

‘We are pleased that justice has been done and the girl can hopefully now enjoy a brighter future.’
