A teenage boy has been remanded in custody after a 4-year-old girl was injured in Grimsby.

The girl was travelling with her dad along Hildyard Street in Grimsby last week when a group of teenagers kicked a ball at the vehicle.

When the dad stopped the minibus to confront the group, a row broke out. As they tried to drive away, a brick was thrown at the minibus and smashed through a window. It hit the 4-year-old leaving her with nasty injuries, including a lost top front tooth, a fractured nose and swollen lip.

A 17 year-old boy who we cannot name for legal reasons has been charged with an attempt to wound. He has been remanded in custody.
