The five-year-old boy who died after he was knocked down by a bus at a tourist attraction in Lancashire has been named as Hissamul Haque.

A coach driver has been questioned about the death of Hissamul from Bridgeman Street in Bolton.

The incident happened at the Camelot theme park near Chorley, Lancashire, at 1800 BST on Sunday.

Paramedics say the youngster appeared to have suffered massive head injuries and died at the scene.

Witnesses said the boy had been playing football on a perimeter road near Camelot when the incident happened.

Camelot Chief Executive Roy Page said the company would cooperate fully with the police investigation.

The accident took place a week after five people died at the Ingoldmells theme park in Lincolnshire when they were struck by a bus.
