According to reports, the boy suffered "severe" pelvis, chest and abdomen injuries. He was treated at the scene by paramedics before being flown to James Cook University Hospital in Middlesbrough.

His condition has been described as stable, and Durham police said that an investigation had been passed onto Health and Safety inspectors.
