The family of the two boys are continuing to receive support from our specially trained officers, a spokesman for West Midlands Police said.

Sanjay was a pupil at Cotwall End Primary School in Sedgley and was a year away from starting secondary school, while Pawanveer was days away from his second birthday.

Their mother Arathi Nehar was also critically injured in the crash. She later described how it had been a "normal day" before she and her boys went out to get fish and chips.

Flowers, cards, balloons and other tributes lined the road where the boys were killed following the crash and hundreds turned out for their funerals.

A memorial garden was also opened at Cotwall End Primary School in the boys' honour.
