A North Walsham baby who stopped breathing this afternoon (Thursday) has been taken to hospital.

An East of England Ambulance Service spokesman said an ambulance and officer were called to Plantation Road just after 3pm.

He confirmed a baby, aged around one, had 'stopped breathing' but paramedics and crew from the East Anglian Air Ambulance (EAAA) managed to resuscitate the child.

The EAAA landed near Plantation Road and left North Walsham at 3.40pm, according to a resident.

Paramedics and a member of the EAAA crew travelled with the baby on the land ambulance to the Norfolk and Norwich University Hospital.
