A TERRIFIED mum experienced a parent’s worst nightmare when she got separated from her five-year-old daughter on a bus.

The girl ended up alone on the no14 from Birmingham to Chelmsley Wood – sparking a frantic police chase through the city.

Cops leapt into action after the panicked mum called 999 when she noticed her daughter hadn’t jumped off the bus at the same time.

Thankfully, after the child was found asleep on the bus just four miles down the route.

An image taken at the scene where she was discovered and reunited with her mum shows three police cars behind the bus.

West Midlands Police said: "Newtown officers have chased this bus for over four miles from the city out towards Kitts Green after a five-year-old got separated from her family.

"Mum’s complete relief was a joy to see and a happy ending all round when the child was found asleep on the bus. The gaffer even got a hug.

"Mum thought the child had stepped off the bus before her. She hadn’t.
