A SOCIAL worker who left a nine-year-old boy with learning difficulties in a roadside lay-by has been sacked.
The boy, who has severe learning difficulties, was found by transport police on the railway at Hurlford, Ayrshire, after wandering away from a lay-by near Kilmarnock - thee miles from his home. Social worker Maureen Law and teacher Michael Roos left him after he began to misbehave in the car as he returned from an outing with two other children. Ms Law has been dismissed by East Ayrshire Council. Mr Roos has been recommended for dismissal.
