A three-year-old boy has been praised by police for calling 999 when his mother fell down the stairs.

Taylor Price, from Foleshill in Coventry, was unable to wake 21-year-old Chloe and dialled for help after finding her mobile phone.

In a recording of the 999 call, Taylor can be heard telling a police call handler, "my mummy has hurt herself".

He then found the front door keys and opened the door for paramedics, who turned up to help.
