Alton Towers Resort confirmed the air ambulance attended the park, but said the boy’s illness was unrelated to the visit.

A spokesman said: “An air ambulance attended the Resort at around 1pm today.  Our medical team contacted West Midlands Ambulance Service after a child became unwell whilst visiting with their family. 

“WMAS called the air ambulance because of our rural location. The family has been taken to the Royal Stoke Hospital and we wish the child a speedy recovery.”
