It says: ‘Our beloved Alfie. We were so lucky to have you in our lives, which gave us light, joy, love and happiness.

‘Now that you have been taken from us so suddenly and at such a young age, just 11 years old, we are going to miss you forever.

‘We will carry your love in our hearts throughout our lives until our last breath, and we hope that one day we will meet in God’s heaven to give you the last hug that we wished to have given you before you went.

‘We love you and will always do so. Anna, Marcos and Chloe. ‘

Police are investigating the accident and have said it was a ‘single-vehicle collision’. They would like to hear from anyone who has seen the red Qashqai who had traveled from Basingstoke.

Senior investigating officer, Detective Mark Furse, from the Serious Collision Investigation Unit, said: ‘This is a tragic incident in which an 11-year-old boy sadly and so suddenly lost his life.

‘We are working hard to understand the exact circumstances and I would like to appeal to anyone with information – especially anyone with dashcam footage of the vehicle – to contact us and give us the opportunity to put together this young boy’s last moments.

‘Anyone with information that can help us should call 101 and provide reference 44210516070.’
