Tributes have been paid to a 13-year-old boy who was crushed by a car as he tried to stop it rolling away.

All Hallows Catholic Col­lege pupil Kaden Gow­ers died fol­low­ing the tragedy on Fowey Close, a quiet cul-de-sac off st Austell Av­enue.

An in­quest which was later opened at War­ring­ton Coroners Court heard that Kaden and a friend had been in the car and that the hand­brake had ‘in­ad­ver­tently’ been taken off and it started rolling.

The pair got out and tried to stop it, but Kaden fell un­der it.

Af­ter his death, school prin­ci­pal tony billings said Kaden had joined the school in year nine. He said: “in a very short space of time he made many new friends both at All Hallows and across the town.

“We are all deeply sad­dened by news of the tragic ac­ci­dent which has taken Kaden from us.” A fundrais­ing page set up to raise money for his fu­neral has ex­ceeded its £2,000 tar­get, rais­ing more than £2,600 so far. ●●
