Panic at US nursery after toddler discovers loaded gun

A toddler began walking around with a loaded gun at a nursery after her grandmother left the weapon in her nappy bag, policy say.

The 17-month-old discovered the gun after her grandmother dropped her off at the facility in northern Vermont.

The grandmother apparently placed the handgun in the bag as she was leaving her house in a hurry.

Police said she will not face any charges due to the "accidental nature" of the incident.
