A baby boy was airlifted to hospital yesterday after being scalded by a cup of tea at an address in Saxmundham.

An ambulance and Essex Air Ambulance were sent to the scene following a 999 call at 1.04pm.

The child suffered extensive burns to his face after he pulled a hot drink onto himself.

Paramedics gave the boy pain relief before he was flown to Broomfield Hospital for further treatment.
