Baby boy flown to Newcastle hospital after being run over

A 15-month-old boy was airlifted to a Newcastle hospital with serious injuries after being run over by a reversing car.

The child was taken by the Pride of Cumbria air ambulance to the paediatric major trauma centre at the Royal Victoria Infirmary, Newcastle.

His condition was today described as comfortable and stable.

The boy - from the London area - suffered leg, pelvic and abdominal injuries in the incident on the car park of Lime House School, Dalston, yesterday afternoon.

He was treated by paramedics and doctors at the scene before being flown to the RVI.

An air ambulance spokesman said: "We would like to extend our best wishes to the family and commend them for remaining calm on scene."
