An inquest is being held today into the death of a young cyclist from Wiltshire who was hit by a roadsweeper.

11-year-old Daniel Climance from Purton was killed in June when he pulled out into the road to avoid a parked car. He was on a bike ride with his father and brother when it happened.

His family have described him as "a beautiful, loving child with a fantastic sense of humour", and a lot of friends.
