First picture of 6-year-old boy killed in horror accident as mum pays heartbreaking tribute

A mother has paid tribute to her “wonderful” son, Leo Painter, who tragically lost his life alongside two women in a horrifying crash near Worcester last Thursday.

Leo, a six-year-old who adored Paw Patrol, was remembered by his “heartbroken” mum, Gemma. She shared, “Leo was a wonderful little boy. He always had a smile on his face and was a bundle of fun. I’m heartbroken that I won’t see him again. He loved PAW Patrol, and I gave him a pair of pyjamas with his favourite characters on. He said he loved wearing ‘Mummy’s pyjamas’.”

Expressing her emotional state, Gemma added, “I’m so numb. The road has a 30mph limit but it’s known for people speeding. I don’t know who the men were, but I was told they were in their 20s.”
