Police investigating the cause of the accident removed another lamppost of similar size to weigh it and check if the fittings attached to the wall are the right size.

The company in charge of the lamp posts’ maintenance, Palmallum, is examining all the lamp posts on the street to check they are secure.

The lamps in question are located in the city centre in areas like Son Espanyolet.

The Town Hall has offered the boy’s family accommodation and transport while their son is in hospital.

Palma Mayor, José Hila, was due to meet the young victim’s family this week.
