Badly scalded boy flown to hospital in Newcastle

A badly scalded young boy was airlifted to hospital in Newcastle this afternoon.

The youngster received non life-threatening injuries to his head, neck and chest.

The Pride of Cumbria air ambulance was called by the ambulance service to help the child, aged under four, at Seaton, near Workington.

Medics gave the boy advanced pain relief before flying him and his mum to the Royal Victoria Infirmary.

He was said to be stable on arrival at the hospital.

The boy was the third child in six days to require treatment after being scalded.

An eight-month-old boy was taken to the RVI after an incident at a Keswick cafe last Thursday and an 18-month-old girl was taken to hospital in Lancaster after being scalded in Bowness on Windermere the following day.

Dreaming of a white Christmas... or a wet one?

I'd love a white Christmas. Still hoping.

It will be wet and windy - count on it.

Let it snow - but only when I'm not driving!
