A mother has been found guilty of manslaughter after leaving her baby girl to drown in the bath.

Sarah Morris, 35, was found guilty of gross negligence manslaughter of one-year-old Rosie on Wednesday.

Rosie drowned in waist-deep bath water at Morris’s flat in Greenfield near Holywell, Flintshire, on 29 July 2015.

Mold Crown Court heard Morris spent 47 minutes talking to her partner while Rosie and her twin brother were alone in the bath without any baby support.

The conversation only ended when her partner Sarah Swindells suggested she check on the children, the court was told.

Sarah Morris denied the manslaughter of her baby daughter

Ms Morris was given help from Flintshire council and received a leaflet detailing the dangers of leaving children unattended in the bath just two weeks before Rosie died.

A pathologist also described how a baby could drown in “a few inches of water”.

Morris claimed she left her children alone for no longer than “two or three” minutes.

The court heard she had to be stopped from banging her head on a wall when she realised Rosie was dead.

She will be sentenced later on Wednesday.
