A baby has been airlifted to a hospital in Essex after being scalded this morning.

The child, who is is less than one year old but not a new-born baby, did not suffer life-threatening injuries after being hurt in Reepham, according to the air ambulance service.

A spokesman said they were called at 9.45am and arrived at 10.13am, and left the scene at 11.05am. The air ambulance touched down at Broomfield Hospital in Chelmsford at 11.35am.

The spokesman said it was standard procedure to take someone so young who suffered burns to Broomfield.
