A 12 year old who died in Derby has been described by his family as a boy full of life and laughter.

Floral tributes have been left at the scene and  hundreds of messages of condolence are being posted on social media.

Adam's family have  issued a tribute to him thanking people for their support.

They said: "We, as a family, would like to thank each and every single person - friends, family and even people we have never met - for your love, condolences and support after the tragic death of our darling boy.

"Adam, as all who knew him would say, was a happy, cheeky and caring rogue who was full of life and laughter. This is how we remember him and how we would like everyone to remember him, too.

"When you think of Adam, smile."

An inquest into Adam's death is due to open at Derby and South Derbyshire Coroner's Court on Tuesday.
