TRIBUTES have been paid to a five-year-old boy who died in a car crash at the weekend.

Harvey Bannister died in hospital following the accident in Ravenhayes Lane, Frankley Green on Saturday (November 4).

West Mercia Police issued the following tribute on behalf of his family:

"We are devastated at the sudden death of our beloved son, grandson, brother, nephew and cousin, Harvey.

"We were all so proud of him and he will be desperately missed both by us and his friends."

Harvey, from Birmingham, was a passenger in a grey Kia Ceed which collided with a white Peugeot Expert at around 11.50am. The driver of the Peugeot was also killed.
