A 10th boy trapped in a cave in Thailand has been freed and taken to an ambulance on a stretcher before being transferred to hospital.

An ambulance has been seen leaving the area in a similar pattern to what has happened on previous days.

Officials say the boys rescued from the Tham Luang cave network so far are in good health overall however two are believed to have been diagnosed with pneumonia.

They are said to be hungry and have asked for bread with chocolate topping for breakfast – despite being told they should only have bland foods.

The final push for rescue teams will be ‘challenging’ because of the risk of more rain percolating through cave walls.
