A MUM has been branded “disgusting” after she was caught on CCTV changing her baby’s nappy on a grass verge.
The mum also abandons the soiled nappy in the grass and lets her son step on it several times before walking off.
Footage captured on CCTV in Lye, Stourbridge shows the mum changing her young son’s nappy as a man – presumably the child’s dad – watches, leaning against a signpost.
The boy then stumbles over the dirty, left abandoned on the grass verge.
The young family then walk off leaving the soiled nappy strewn on the grass.
The footage was shared anonymously from a local business owner who said it’s not the first incident of its kind.
The anonymous uploader also said the business have previously experienced problems with dog owners neglecting to pick up their pets’ poo and with broken glass bottles also being left in the area.
The clip has been widely shared on social media, sparking disgust with users branding the parents “disgusting, careless and dirty.”
One user said: “Eww, that is actually rank! This kind of behaviour is just careless and dirty.”
While another added: “What is wrong with these types of people? Why the hell would you just leave it on the ground?”
And a third wrote: “I actually feel sorry for the person who has to clean that up – they are disgusting animals.”
People dropping rubbish face fines of up to £150 from today in a sweeping government crackdown on litter.
The maximum possible fixed penalty notice (FPN) charge for litter and graffiti offences has almost doubled from £80 to £150.

And for the first time, those same penalties can be used against vehicle owners if litter is thrown from their car – even if they aren’t in them at the time.
The default littering penalty is also rising from £75 to £100. And the minimum possible penalty will rise from £50 to £65, but only from April 2019.
Total fines can soar beyond £150 if people refuse to pay and are dragged through the courts.
