The headteacher of tragic Leamington schoolboy, Rowan Fitzgerald has described the youngster as a ‘gorgeous little boy.’

The seven-year-old St Anthony’s Catholic Primary School pupil was killed as he sat at the front of the double-decker bus back home to Leamington Spa.

The youngster was travelling with his grandparents and eight-year-old cousin – who remains in hospital.

Jane McSharry, headteacher at St Anthony’s Catholic Primary School, said: “Rowan was a perfect, kind, unassuming, gorgeous little boy, with a smile to melt any heart.

“He loved to learn but he also loved to play. He loved his sport, he loved his football and he just was the most gorgeous, gorgeous boy.

“The thoughts and prayers of our whole school community are with his family at this tragic time.”

Tributes laid at the scene of the accident give their condolences to Rowan’s family – saying that seven is “too young to go.”
