A 13-year-old boy remains in critical condition after a horror crash between two motorbikes in a Merseyside park.
The teenager was taken to Alder Hey Hospital with serious head injuries and a fractured femur following the collision in Rimrose Valley Park, on Beach Road, Litherland on Saturday evening.
A 16-year-old boy who was also involved in the crash was taken to Fazakerley Hospital with fractured legs. Police confirmed this morning he is still in a serious but stable condition.
Paramedics were called to the scene by a dog walker at around 7.15pm who was in the park at the time of the collision.
The ambulance service, which alerted police to the incident following the call from the dog walker, sent two ambulances and an advanced paramedic to the scene.
When paramedics arrived at the park they found a 13-year-old with serious injuries and a 16-year-old with leg and shoulder injuries and both were taken to hospital.
Police carried out investigations into the crash through the early hours of the morning at the scene on Saturday.
