A three-year-old girl was taken to hospital with facial injuries after a wave smashed the window of a car.

The toddler had been travelling inside the vehicle along the seafront in Scarborough, north Yorkshire, on Sunday when the wave shattered a rear seat window.

Police were called shortly after 4.20pm while the girl was taken to hospital with minor cuts to her face.

North Yorkshire Police later tweeted a warning, urging motorists to "stay away" from the sea.
