Sidney has since been transported to Addenbrookes Hospital for treatment where he remains in a medically induced coma after surgery in a serious but stable condition.

A GoFundMe page has now been set up to help support Sidney and his family.

Tara Hudson, Sidney Aunt said “Anyone who knows Darrin (Dad), Kirsty (Mum), Sidney, and Leni (Sister) know what an incredibly special family they are.

Sid is such a beautiful, respectful, and kind young man and the greatest big brother to Leni.
