The family of 10-year-old William Warren who died last week following a road traffic collision in Stowmarket have paid tribute to their son.

"People who knew our little boy William will remember a special person, who enjoyed lots of friends, girls as well as boys. His energy for life was relentless. His smile and laugh were infectious. He loved life and lived it to the full - be it running around playing 'Army Soldiers' on the fields at the back of our house or building dens in the ditches. The possibilities for fun were never ending. His imagination endless. His love for animals, caring and gentle. Our Border Collie 'Flossie' still pines for Wills as he ran, walked and played ball with her. If he felt a bit down, 'Floss' would cuddle up to him and give him a love and a kiss. When Wills was dying, no one could believe it. I can tell you, nurses skipped rest breaks to be there for him. Policemen cried tears for him.

We as a family would like to thanks all the dedicated nurses and doctors at Addenbrookes Hospital, also thanks to the brilliant Ambulance paramedics who carefully and gently took our little boy to the Hospital by road Ambulance. The Air Ambulance crew could not take William, but assisted him before he was driven to Addenbrookes. The Police worked as a team, and are still giving us much appreciated support.

We have been moved to tears by all the floral tributes, also teddy's and cards placed at the accident spot. William would have loved all the pretty colours. So, to all the children and parents, Thank you so much for your support and kindness, at this, our saddest time.

Tim, Tracey, Kate, Richard and Anthony Warren."
