A young boy has suffered a serious leg injury after being involved in a collision with a mobility scooter.

The collision happened in Warner's Park, St Ives, at about 4pm on Friday, September 19.

The four-year-old boy, who had been playing with friends in the park at the time, was taken to hospital and later released.

The scooter was being ridden by a woman who was not injured.

Police are now trying to find out exactly how the collision happened.

DC Dianne Booth said: "This collision left the boy with a serious injury to his leg and it will take some time for him to recover fully.

"There were people in the park at the time so I would encourage them to come forward and let us have any information they think could help us determine how the collision happened."

The boy's mum is Gina Hayward, who told Heart what's happened since the crash, "He's had an operation to straighten his leg, as it was a bad break, it's just been very, very upsetting.

"He's got a very positive spirit, he's a very happy boy, but he's frustrated because he can't do things he normally would, like karate, swimming and riding his bike. He actually thought he would never walk again."
