Harley Watson's classmates pay tribute to Loughton car death pupil
Classmates of a boy killed by a car outside his school have held a minute's applause in his memory.
Harley Watson, 12, was among a group of pupils hit outside Debden Park High School in Loughton, Essex, on 2 December.
The school said clapping in tribute felt more "appropriate" than a silence as he was a "keen football fan".
A message on its Facebook page said: "We have been inundated with messages of support from schools all over the country."
An inquest into Harley's death which opened earlier confirmed he died of a severe head injury.
Terence Glover, 51, of Loughton, has been charged with Harley's murder and 10 counts of attempted murder. He will next appear in court in January.
