A mum has shared a heartwarming note a woman left on her car saying it brought tears to her eyes after a 'distressing' drive.

The parent said she her nine-week-old baby son had cried throughout the drive to drop off her six-year-old daughter at school before she spotted the note.

She explained her baby son may have a possible allergy or intolerance and wanted to be held by her but as she was driving he became upset which left her distressed.

But her other son, who is almost three, helped to alleviate the situation as he sat patiently in his seat staring out the window.

In her post in a Facebook group she said she her vehicle was in the Matalan car park in Leeds on Tuesday morning when she spotted the note on her way back.
