999 boy's VIP visit to police HQ

A little boy from County Durham who dialled 999 when his mother collapsed at home has enjoyed a VIP trip to police HQ.

Oliver Embleton was just two when he made the call to Northumbria Police and is believed to be the youngest person ever to call the emergency services in the UK.

Oliver, now three, of Thornley, met the police call handler who kept him on the line until help arrived. Look North's Stephanie Cleasby went to meet him.
