Statement from family over Tenby Zoo sentencing

The family of a boy and his mother who were seriously injured in an incident at a west Wales wildlife park in 2010 say they are still living with the "devastating effects" of what happened.

Three-year-old Gruff Davies-Hughes suffered serious head injuries when a heavy branch fell on him in strong winds. He spent three days in intensive care after being airlifted to hospital

His mother suffered a head injury and fractures to her leg, pelvis, and arm.

The family continue to live with the devastating effects of the accident upon a daily basis. Whilst progress is being made they request that their privacy is respected in order to best facilitate that continued recovery and they thank everyone for their understanding in that regard.
