Child Working Sentencing

Hi, I work off the books at a local takeaway, although my hours have been cut down as they have a "new employee", it has come to my attention that this "new employee" is actually my boss's 11 year old son. He works from half 4 till 11 pm, and a total working week for him is now 19.5 hours. I have done some research and I found out this is completely illegal. They have apparently been in trouble before with this, but I am not certain.

I also have worrys over their 4 month old son and 5 year old son. The 4 month old has a serious skin condition from being "left next to the radiator for too long" and is also left by himself up stairs without a baby monitor for hours on end while the rest of the family are down stairs. The 5 year old has a serious chest infection that has lasted for months due to his parents letting him wonder around the LOCAL area without a scarf, coat or gloves during December.

Is it right for me to report it, or should I leave it to their teachers and other local authoriries? If so how can I report this and keep myself anonymous? Also what could come from it? (such as sentencing, or social services having rights over all of their under aged children)
