Detective Sergeant Fiona Hoodless, of the Major Collision Enquiry Team, said: “We are supporting Mason’s family at what is understandably a very difficult time for them and they have asked that their privacy is respected.

“We are continuing to build up a picture of the exact circumstances of the collision in which he died, and we are still keen to hear from anyone who witnessed the incident or the movements of any of the three vehicles involved in the time leading up to it.

“If anyone was driving in the area at the time and has any relevant dash-cam footage, we would also like to hear from them.”
