Paddling pool warning as hot weather arrives

It's been a long time coming but it seems the summer has finally arrived. This weekend will see the start of the hottest spell since 2006.

To coincide with the warmer weather, a mum from Dorset is warning others about the dangers of paddling pools. Debbie Brown's seven-year-old son was left severely brain damaged when he fell into one at a birthday party.
