Police Scotland has released a statement from his family who are still coming to terms with their devastating loss.

They said: “Xander was a very happy, bubbly, intelligent little boy who was very dearly loved by his parents Victoria and Paul. Xander was a real chatterbox who just loved books, playing with all sorts of vehicles and his Lego. He really enjoyed life and he enriched the lives of everyone he met."

Yesterday we told how Morningside residents were in mourning since news of the fatal crash, with dozens of shocked locals leaving floral tributes at the scene.

Teddy bears look over a number of bouquets of flowers at the scene - some of which contain heartfelt messages to Xander and his family at this difficult time.

One read: “RIP little one. Fly high with the angels.”
