Tens of thousands of pounds have been raised to pay for the funeral of a two-week-old baby who died after his pram was hit by a car.

Ciaran Leigh Morris was being pushed along Brownhills High Street near Walsall when a BMW struck his pram.

The vehicle is thought to have collided with another car before veering onto the pavement at about 4pm on Easter Sunday, West Midlands Police said.

Ciaran was rushed to hospital but died shortly afterwards.

In just three days, an online crowdfunding campaign has raised more than £25,000 to support his family.

The organisers had hoped to get £2,000 to help pay for his funeral, but quickly surpassed their target.

On Tuesday, James Paul Davis appeared at Wolverhampton Magistrates Court charged with causing death by dangerous driving.
