COVENTRY City FC have said everyone at the club is saddened to learn of the tragic death of young supporter Keaton Slater.

Keaton was killed after being hit by a car which failed to stop on Radford Road on Friday afternoon.

In a statement, the club said: “The 12-year-old was a huge Coventry City supporter, and the thoughts and condolences of everyone at Coventry City Football Club and the entire Sky Blue community are with Keaton’s family and friends at this awful time for them.”

The Sky Blues added they would be liaising with Keaton’s family to support them and to help them to remember and to pay tribute to Keaton.

A fundraising page set up for Keaton’s family has now raised more than £38,000. Click here to donate or to leave messages of support.

Yesterday, West Midlands Police released a picture of Dolars Aleksanders who is wanted on suspicion of death by dangerous driving following the crash.
