The devastated family of a six-year-old boy killed in a car crash on Friday have described him as ‘a beautiful, happy and intelligent little boy who inspired love and happiness in everyone he met’.

Jamie Peter Elliott Sutton, of Bovingdon, died at the scene of the crash in Ley Hill Road, Chesham.

The youngster was travelling in a black Ford Ka when the 29-year-old woman driver crashed.

A tribute released by Thames Valley Police on behalf of Jamie’s family said: “His cheeky grin and even cheekier personality will be missed so much by his family, extended family and more friends than you would think it possible for a six year old to have.

“Jamie was loved by so many people, adults and children alike. We would like to thank our family, friends and Waterside School for their continued support.

“As a family we are obviously struggling with this devastating and life changing situation, we would like to ask everyone to give us the time and privacy we need to grieve.

“Sleep tight my angel, we will love you forever.”

Police are appealing for anyone who saw the accident, which happened at 4.15pm, to get in touch with Sgt Kerry Clarke or PC Julia Stroud from the road death investigation team at Bicester on 101.
