Toddler bitten 15 times by children at soft play centre in Seacroft Leeds

A toddler was left scarred for life after being bitten 15 times by other children on a day out at a soft play centre.

Willow-Ivy Doherty, 17 months, was playing with her brother Tucker, six and sister Aurora, three, at the Little Beas soft play centre in Seacroft, Leeds when disaster struck.

Suddenly her mother Becky heard another parent scream ‘Oh my God, whose baby is this?’

The mother was forced to pull a little boy off Willow’s neck when it emerged she had 15 bite marks all over her body.

Single mother-of-six Becky claims the youngster ‘had a big smile on his face and blood all around his mouth’, reports The Mirror. 

Becky said she believed the boy was two and was with a four year old who was apparently his brother. 

Becky told the newspaper: ‘She looks like she’s been savaged by a dog, not a child.’ 

Her mother Becky (pictured with Willow-Ivy) said: 'She looks like she's been savaged by a dog, not a child.'

She eventually found the mother of the child, who she claimed insisted ‘That’s what kids do, that’s what kids do!’ 

Little Willow-Ivy was taken to hospital where she was given an urgent injection for Hepatitis B and treatment for her cuts.

Doctors believe Willow Ivy’s 15 bites came from two different children and have left angry red marks all over her body. 

The youngster still needs more injections to ensure she has not contracted anything from the bites, which cover her face, back and limbs.

In total she has four on her face, two on her fingers, three on her back, one on her ear, shoulder, wrist, leg and others on her head. 

A spokesman for Little Bees told the Mirror: ‘We are not a nursery. The children need parental supervision.’

West Yorkshire Police added that social services were informed about the incident but the case has now been closed.
