The family of a two-year-old boy who died in a collision with a vehicle, have paid tribute to their "little man" who "loved watching Peppa Pig".

Jake Kenneth Fawcett, from Seascale, was seriously injured after he was hit by the vehicle at a farm in Gosforth, shortly after 4:30pm on 21 March.

He was taken to the Royal Victoria Infirmary at Newcastle, but died shortly after arriving:

“Jake was a typical two year old who enjoyed getting into mischief with his twin sister Phoebe and older sister Annie.

"He loved watching Peppa Pig, playing with his cousins and dunking biscuits in people's tea.

“Jake will be dearly missed by all who knew him. We would just like to thank the community for the amazing support and kind words. Shine bright little man.”
