A three-year-old boy who was crushed by a car seat had trauma injuries similar to those of a victim in a car crash, a court has heard. Alfie Lamb died after his mother's boyfriend allegedly reversed his seat into him during a car journey in 2018.

Alfie was found unresponsive as the pair arrived at their home in Croydon following a shopping trip to Sutton with two others on 1 February. Full story
