    [​IMG]The mother posted this advert on Gumtree (Picture: Gumtree) A mother from Bradford has had her children taken away by social services after she reportedly tried to sell one of them on the internet for £150,000.
    The unnamed 20-year-old said she set up an advert on Gumtree offering a baby for sale as a joke and never intended to go through with it, the Daily Mail reported.
    Despite this, her four-month-old child and his brother, two, were taken into care after authorities were alerted to the advert by concerned members of the public.
    [​IMG]Authorities took the baby away after being notified by Gumtree users (Picture: Gumtree) ‘I had been joking with my ex about selling sperm and eggs and he sort of dared me to put up a baby for sale – but I didn’t mean our children,’ she said.
    ‘I was crying and begging at this one social worker’s feet, but she just took my son away.’
    The mother, who is reportedly experiencing post-natal depression, had posted the classified ad on Thursday.

    Seems a little OTT if she was just posting a joke ad.
    If I posted am advert offering to sell my kidney I wouldn't actually go though with it!
