A NINE-year-old boy got a fish-hook caught through his cheek in Lyme Regis.

The boy had been caught by a relative fishing off the North Wall.

An ambulance and coastguards were called out at 8.10pm yesterday (Thursday, July 29). The barb of the hook was cut off and the rest removed slowly from the wound.

The boy was able to return to his grandmother’s home afterwards.
