On November 2, Willow-Ivy Doherty, 17 months, was playing with her siblings,  at the Little Bees soft play centre in Seacroft, Leeds, when another Parent had noticed bite marks all over Willow's face and neck. The 17-month-old had been bitten 15 times all over her body while playing in the soft play area.

A little boy in the soft play area had to be pulled off Willow's neck as he was biting her.  Willow's mother Becky claims that the boy "had a big smile on his face and blood all around his mouth".

Becky told The Mirror 'She looks like she's been savaged by a dog, not a child".

After finding the mother of the little boy who had bitten Willow, the mother claimed " 'That's what kids do, that's what kids do!'

Becky took Willow-Ivy to the hospital where she was given an urgent injection for Hepatitis B and treatment for her cuts. She also requires a skin graft on her face.

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

Willow-Ivy received four bite marks 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.'
