Dear Josie,
If you know of a child being abused you are legally bound to report it. You can call Childline on 0800 055 555 and they will give you the step by step guide. I know its a horrible situation, but if that child is left where he is the damage could be irrepairable to his physical and mental health. He is a child and needs to be protected.
