A five-year-old boy has been praised after he called the police when his grandfather fell ill.

Lucas dialled 999 when his grandfather Gary collapsed at his home in Catterick Village.

Police and an ambulance were sent to the house where they found Gary had fallen into a diabetic coma.

North Yorkshire Police's Assistant Chief Constable Ciaron Irvine paid a visit to Lucas's primary school to thank him for his quick thinking and give him an early Christmas present.
