Ciaran Leigh Morris’s heartbroken parents Camaron Morris and Codie Holyman had previously visited the scene in the High Street to tie the first blue ribbons to the railings where the tragedy happened on Easter Sunday.

Since then, more floral tributes, ribbons, teddies, balloons and messages have been left at the scene with blue ribbons now stretching around the town.

And now the town’s miner statue, off High Street, has been given a blue ribbon garland.

Ciaran Leigh Morris was two weeks old

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

A JustGiving page, which was set up to support Ciaran’s family has now raised nearly £40,000.
