THE PARENTS of a Rugby baby who died after a smash on the M6 have paid tribute to their ‘beautiful boy’.

Freddie Fox died after suffering serious injuries in the crash which happened on the northbound carriageway near Rugby on Sunday December 7.

The 13-month-old was airlifted to Birmingham Children’s Hospital but died in the early hours of Wednesday December 10.

Freddie’s parents, Andrew Fox and Charlotte Jolliffe, described Freddie as ‘the most lovable 13-month-old you could ever imagine’.

“Our beautiful baby boy, Freddie, was and always will be our world,” they said in a tribute.

“He was never without a smile upon his face and never failed to put one on ours or anyone’s whoever met him.

“He is cherished by so many and will be missed greatly. He was the cheekiest, smartest, cutest, most loveable 13-month-old you could ever imagine and he had so much left to give.

“Have fun playing with the angels baby, mummy and daddy love and miss you so so much. Sweet dreams and rest in peace.”

Police are continuing to appeal for witnesses to the crash, which happened between junctions one and two on the northbound carriageway at around 9.35am.

Investigating officer, PC David Findon of Warwickshire Police, said: “This is an extremely tragic incident and our thoughts are with the family. We ask that their privacy is respected at this very difficult time. We continue to appeal for witnesses and wish to establish the circumstances of the collision.”

Anyone who witnessed the crash should contract PC Findon on 01926 415415.
