Middlesbrough Dad's Helmet Campaign
A Middlesbrough man's wearing a helmet for a full month after his baby boy was diagnosed with flat head syndrome
Gary Hamilton's 5 month old son Alfie wears a protective helmet for his skull, which was starting to become misshapen.
It could cause his jaw to become misaligned, dental issues or for Alfie not to be able to wear glasses in the future, if it was left untreated,
He hopes his idea will raise vital awareness of the condition, and thousands of pounds for children who have the condition.
It happened shortly after midnight on Thursday January 18th on Scotswood Road
