A toddler has been reunited with his family after he was found wandering alone in Douglas.

The boy, who was around three years old, was spotted by police near the Cooil Road at 4.30 this morning.

Officers said he was a 'happy little chap' and it appeared he'd simply woken up and gone for a wander.

The boy was taken to Noble's Hospital while enquiries were launched to find his family.

The distraught parents contacted police a short time later and boy was able to return home.
