A two-year-old boy is in a "potentially life-threatening" condition in hospital after being hit by a bus in Devon, police have said.

The boy was involved in a collision with a single-decker bus in Exeter at about 11:00 BST.

Police said the boy had a serious head injury following the incident in Sidwell Street, and had been moved from a Devon hospital to a Bristol one.

Devon and Cornwall Police have closed the road and launched an investigation.

A spokesman said his injury was being treated as "potentially life threatening at this time".

The boy had been taken to the Royal Devon and Exeter Hospital but has since been moved to Frenchay Hospital in Bristol.
