A Kent Air Ambulance was called to help emergency crews landing in Herne Bay Memorial Park.

But the helicopter was not needed to airlift the boy to hospital as he travelled by road ambulance instead.

The incident took place in front of shocked witnesses at the park who said the boy was with his mum and younger brother.

One young woman said the boy had head and leg injuries but signalled he was ok before leaving in the ambulance.
