A mother has admitted using a bamboo cane to beat her son. She made the confession after being accused of murdering her three-year-old son.

She said she hit him with a bamboo cane to “chastise him as the bible allowed”, a court has heard.

On the first day of her trial, Newcastle Crown Court heard that her son suffered months of beatings and burns before he died in hospital on November 5, 2022.
