Ciaran Leigh Morris was being walked down Brownhills High Street on Easter Sunday by his parents when a BMW hit the pram and pinned it against a wall after colliding with another car.

While floral tributes and messages have been left at the scene, a JustGiving page has been created to support the family.

Karl Roberts launched the page saying: "On the 4th of April, a traffic collision occurred on Brownhills high street that resulted in the loss of life of a two week old baby. We are trying to raise funds to support the family at this very difficult time."
