Crowd-funding hits £30,000 to help family of two-week-old baby killed in crash

A crowd-funding drive for the family of a two-week-old baby boy who was killed after a car hit his pram has reached more than £30,000, following a public outpouring of sympathy.

Little Ciaran Leigh Morris suffered serious injuries after a white BMW collided with his stroller as relatives were pushing him along the pavement in Brownhills near Walsall, West Midlands, on Easter Sunday afternoon.

He was rushed to hospital, but nothing could be done to save him.

A crowd-funding site which was set up through JustGiving with an appeal target of £2,000 to help support the family, has now raised more than 10 times that total in just four days.

More than 2,000 people and businesses have so far donated.
