A boy suffered a facial injury after being hit by a bike in a park yesterday - the second collision in Gants Hill that day which involved a child.
The London Ambulance Service (LAS) was called to Valentines Park, in Emerson Road, at 5.15pm to reports of a road traffic accident.
It sent a single responder in a car and one ambulance crew to the scene, where the boy was treated for a facial injury before being taken to Whipps Cross Hospital, in Leytonstone.
An earlier collision in Gants Hill saw a 10-year-old boy hit by a car.
The LAS was called to Gants Hill Library, in Cranbrook Road, at 12.20pm and treated the child for foot and leg injuries.
