Brit mum left daughter to die in house after saying she was ‘attention seeking’

A cruel mum left her dying daughter so she could go and have a drink after insisting she was "attention seeking".

Sharon Goldie, 45, said Robyn Goldie, 13, was "at it" despite the teenager begging for help.

The callous mum found her daughter slumped on the sofa, but still left to go out in the garden to have a drink with a friend.

But they eventually discovered Robyn dead before calling for an ambulance, reports DailyRecord.

A judge heard today how the schoolgirl had suffered a year of horrific neglect before her death including being forced to ask someone for a £1 to get food.

The shocking details emerged as Goldie appeared at the High Court in Glasgow.

She pled guilty to a charge under the Children and Young Persons Act of wilfully ill-treating and neglecting Robyn, who died after suffering a burst stomach ulcer.

Prosecutors accepted Goldie's not guilty plea to the culpable homicide of her daughter. She will learn her fate next month.

Robyn had lived with Goldie until she was four before moving in with her gran.

She had earlier been put on the child protection register after Goldie was found to be drunk while supposedly caring for her daughter.

Robyn had also once been forced to call a gas company complaining of being cold.

This lead to the child staying with her gran until 2017 in what was described as a "stable life".

Robyn then returned to her mum in Wishaw, Lanarkshire due to a number of reasons including starting secondary school.

But, the court heard social workers continued to monitor the pair.

Prosecutor Ashley Edwards QC said: "Goldie was offered – on various occasions – the opportunity to attend parenting classes. She declined to attend."

Goldie's drinking became an issue causing "friction" with her daughter.

Miss Edwards: "Goldie asked for (Robyn) to be removed from her care."
