Family pays tribute to Lennix Sutcliffe, 8, after crash tragedy in Dilton Marsh

THE family of Lennix Sutcliffe – an eight-year-old tragically killed in a crash after his scooter was hit by a car on a driveway – have paid tribute to “the light of our small village”.

Lennix sadly passed away after a crash in Woodland View, Dilton Marsh, at around 4.30pm on Saturday afternoon (April 13), when a driver pulled into a driveway in the street.

His parents, Jackie and Chris, said: “Our Lennix was always playing, a happy go lucky child who was loved by everyone and who loved everyone.

“He simply loved life and was the light of our small village.

“He loved Pokémon and his favourite character was Charizard. He was playing today, just playing, taking every ounce of enjoyment that life offered.

“We as a family are now coming together to support one another. We ask our community to provide us both time and space in the days, weeks and months ahead of us.”

After the crash, a man in his 30s was interviewed by police.
