THREE children have been hurt after a bouncy castle thought to have been caught by a gust of wind left the floor and became wrapped around a telegraph pole.

Horrified onlookers who were attending a double christening celebration at the White House pub in Whitby yesterday screamed as the youngsters fell off the inflatable suffering multiple broken bones.

A seven year old boy was airlifted to James Cook hospital, a seven year old girl sustained head injuries and concussion and was taken to Scarborough Hospital as was a nine year-old boy who broke his leg in the incident.

This morning the children are said to be in a stable condition.

Police closed the road outside the pub while the fire brigade removed the bouncy castle from the telegraph pole and the environmental health department at Scarborough Borough Council will be conducting an investigation.
