A child is critically ill following what police have described as an "incident" at a swimming pool.

Emergency services were called to Old Park Wood, a holiday park in Grange-over-Sands at 16:40 BST on Monday.

The four-year-old was taken to Furness General Hospital, then transferred to Liverpool's Alder Hey Hospital, where he remains in a critical condition.

Cumbria Police said officers were working to establish the circumstances surrounding the incident.

A spokesman for Old Park Wood, which describes itself on its website as a "a luxury, private holiday park", said: "Our thoughts are with the boy and his family at this time".
