A seven-year-old girl is to have an HIV test after being jabbed by a used hypodermic needle as she made sandcastles on a beach. The girl, from Wales, was playing on the crowded sands at Weston-super-Mare, Somerset, on Tuesday when she was pricked in a leg. Her mother took her to hospital where she was examined and given antibiotics and doctors advised about HIV and other tests.
