A woman caught on camera dragging a child across one of Canterbury's busiest roundabouts is thought to have been snapped making the same reckless journey again.
The mystery woman was branded "irresponsible and dangerous" by road safety chiefs after footage emerged of her clambering on the Wincheap roundabout with a small boy.
Now she is thought to have been snapped attempting to cross at the same spot again, while clutching the hand of the toddler.
The photo was taken by Amy Daniel, who said: "The mother was dragging the boy and trying to make him walk and it was clear he didn't want to.
"Something needs to be done because that little boy doesn't deserve to be put in harm's way."
The original video was posted online by Canterbury driving instructor Phil Hunt, 47, who wanted to highlight dangerous behaviour he sees every day.
The footage showed the woman walking to the edge of the roundabout and guiding the child into the road, before following with her back to the rush-hour traffic.

It prompted KCC road safety boss Steve Horton to issue a warning.
He said: "This is irresponsible and dangerous behaviour and shows a complete lack of understanding for the danger she is placing herself and the child in.
"The woman is clearly seen leading a child across several lines of traffic in an area where drivers would not be expecting them.
"There is a subway at this busy junction and a footbridge a short distance away.
"The reality is people are killed or have their lives irreversibly changed by such moments of poor judgement or rash choice."
