After witnessing the accident from the vets opposite, a receptionist and veterinary nurse went running to the boy’s aid.

The receptionist, Philippa Griffith, was among the first at the scene and called the emergency services to Carlton Road.

“The boy was obviously hurt and in total shock,” she added.
