A 10-year-old boy has died after he received an electric shock at a Blackpool hotel, police said.

The youngster was found unresponsive at about 10.39pm on Sunday at a hotel on the Promenade in Blackpool.

He died on Thursday, a Lancashire Police spokesman said.

The child’s injuries were consistent with him having received a “high voltage of electricity”, the force added.

“His family were by his bedside and our thoughts are with them at this time.
