Freddie Perry Freddie was described as a "fantastic" brother to his two sisters

The parents of a 10-year-old boy who died after being hit by a car in Didcot, Oxfordshire, have paid tribute to their "wonderful son".

Freddie Perry was struck by a Nissan Micra in Oxford Crescent shortly after 17:30 BST on Tuesday.

He was taken by ambulance to John Radcliffe hospital but died on Wednesday afternoon.

In a statement, Lea and Judith Perry said he was "our lovely son [and] was taken from us far too early".

"He was... a fantastic younger brother to Rhiannon, 14, who has Down's Syndrome and he doted on her, and to Eloise, 11," they said.

"He will be very sadly missed by all. Rest in peace."

Thames Valley Police urged anyone who was in the area at the time to come forward.
