Tributes paid to boy killed in crash

The family of an 11-year-old boy who died following a crash on the A55 in Flintshire have paid tribute to him.

Jordan Evans was in a car travelling west along the carriageway near to Northop on Thursday morning.

A 3-year-old girl was seriously injured in the accident which happened around 09.30.

In a statement his family said:

"Jordan, you will always be remembered as a truly wonderful caring and loving son, brother, grandson, nephew and cousin by all of your family.

Your tragic and sudden departure has left a huge space in our lives, that can now only be filled by your unique smile, and our fondest memories of the times we spent together.

"Dearest Jordan you will never be forgotten, and we are sure you will never walk alone, as our prayers and love will always be with you.

"Sleep well Jordan, we will all love and miss you from this day forward."

St Richard Gwyn Catholic High School in Flint held a special Mass on Friday morning to remember Jordan.

Head Derek Doran said:

"Jordan was a lovely boy who joined the school in September.

"He was a very caring and supportive member of his class.

"His bubbly personality and cheeky smile made the room light up. He was a pleasure to teach and a great ambassador for his form, helping with assemblies and liturgy readings.

"Obviously at this time our thoughts and prayers are with his family some of whom are seriously ill as a result of the accident."
