The trial into the death of a three-year-old boy from Croydon has begun at the Old Bailey

Alfie Lamb died last February after his mother’s boyfriend allegedly pushed a car seat back on him because he was being noisy.

Prosecutors accuse Stephen Waterson and Alfie’s mother, Adrian Hoare of lying to paramedics about how he died.

The couple are being tried for manslaughter.

Mr Waterson is also accused of intimidating Alfie’s father, who had been driving the car at the time.
