His family has now publicly paid tribute to him.

A spokesman for the family said: “We’re all completely devastated by the loss of our Jakey.

“He could seem serious and quiet at first, but then he would break out into the most beautiful smile, and with those close to him he was warm and chatty.

“Jakey enjoyed reading, drumming, gaming and playing football with his friends. He loved his dog, Bobby, and anything and everything to do with animals.

“He was such a kind, respectful and loving little boy. When he wasn’t making videos with his sister, he was always offering to help out around the house.”

A young girl was also injured in the accident.

She was taken to Worcestershire Royal Hospital.

The spokesman added: "He would often come out with random facts about birds or plants, we never knew where he got them from, but when we looked them up, he was always right.

“(His sister) Lilli-Louise called him her ‘little teddy bear’ and said he was the 'bestest little brother and he was fantastic at swimming and was always compared to a fish’.

"Lilli-Louise, along with the whole family, loves and misses him so very much.”

The family have asked everyone to respect their privacy at this difficult time.

West Mercia Police has confirmed that it is looking to speak with anyone who witnessed the incident, or has information that could help.
