A MUM has shared horrific pictures of her son’s battered eye after she claims the five-year-old was stamped on and knocked unconscious by two older boys at a playground.

She claims the youngster had only been out of her sight for a few minutes when the alleged incident happened at Funtazia on Saturday, February 11 at about 3.30pm.

The 26-year-old said feared he had been kidnapped after he disappeared and after enlisting the help of staff, she found Ollie “looking dazed and confused and full of red marks on his face”.

“He had made a friend in the ball pit and was throwing balls against the wall.

“One of them accidentally hit another boy and then him and another came up and jumped and stamped on him.”

Nicky took the boy to hospital after he suffered bruises to his face, neck and arms where he received X-rays but says everything came back fine.

The concerned mum decided to post pictures of Ollie’s injuries on Facebook where she slammed the bullies as “vile” and urged parents to be “more vigilant” in play areas.

She added that she didn’t blame the play centre but wanted to warn other parents to keep an extra eye on their children and ensure they know this sort of behaviour is “not acceptable”.

A Lancashire Constabulary spokesperson confirmed to the newspaper that they had been called to reports of a five-year-old boy who had been “kicked by two other children”.

A spokesperson for Funtazia said: “We are a children’s play centre, we comply with the health and safety regulations.

“We have staff monitoring what is going on, but it is up to the parents to keep an eye on their children, we are not a nursery.”
