A nine-year-old boy who suffered life-threatening injuries when he fell from a coach has made improvements.

Sebastian Goold, from Wansford near Peterborough, fell from the double-decker on the A47 near King's Lynn, Norfolk, last month.

Police said he was still in hospital in a serious but stable condition.

The boy was travelling with Stamford Rugby Club from Lincolnshire when he fell from an exit door near the coach toilet.

He suffered severe head and leg injuries and was taken to a specialist unit at Addenbrooke's Hospital in Cambridge.

His parents Nick and Tracey Goold have been at his bedside since the accident on 13 April.

Children, parents and staff from the rugby club were returning home after playing in a tournament at Holt in north Norfolk.

Mr Goold was travelling on the coach, while Mrs Goold was in a car as part of a convoy.

Police said investigations were continuing into how the accident happened.
