A 13-YEAR-OLD was taken to hospital after falling 20ft from a tree swing in Moses Gate Country park.

The boy, whose condition is unknown, was hurt in the Red Rocks area of the park on Thursday at around 5pm.

Bolton Mountain Rescue Team (MRT) were called to the incident at 5.22pm, with ambulance paramedics and the North West Air Ambulance helicopter also on the scene.

But shortly after, volunteers were informed the boy had already been evacuated from the scene, so Bolton MRT’s services were no longer required.
