The family of a 13-year-old boy who sadly died following a road traffic collision on the East Lancashire Road in Croxteth have issued a tribute and photograph.

Harry Kinney-Ryan died in hospital following the collision on the evening of Wednesday 7 December.

His family said, “Harry was a loving and caring boy who loved his family and friends. He always made those around him laugh and was definitely the class clown.

“Harry will be deeply missed by all of family, especially his sisters. Everyone will have their own memories of Harry and this is how we want his memory to live on. We cannot thank our family and friends enough for all of their support and kind words. We would also like to thank all of the amazing staff at Alder Hey children’s hospital who took such amazing care of Harry. Goodnight and God bless we love you so much xxxx.”

Detective Sergeant Andy Roper from our Matrix Serious Investigation Collision Unit said, “Our thoughts and sympathies remain with Harry’s family and friends. His family continue to be supported by specially trained family liaison officers.

“Enquiries into the collision remain ongoing. I would appeal for any drivers who were travelling east or westbound along the East Lancashire Road near the Showcase cinema at around 7.20pm on 7 December to get in touch if they believe they have dash cam footage which could assist our investigation.

Anyone who witnessed the collision, or who may have dashcam footage, is asked to contact the Serious Collision Investigation Unit on 0151 777 5747, email , or DM @MerPolTraffic on Twitter quoting reference 22000902647.
