Paramedics and the air ambulance were called to treat a youngster who had suffered burns.

The crews were called to Marks Tey on Monday just before 2pm to a report that a young boy had been burnt by a hot liquid.

The Herts Air Ambulance was called in to provide assistance but did not airlift the youngster.

An East of England Ambulance spokesman said: “It was an incident at a residential address.

“A small boy suffered very minor burns from some hot liquid.”

Essex Police were not called to the incident.
