THE family of a 16-year-old boythought to be the youngest person to die riding an e-scooter have paid tribute to their "beautiful son".
Junior Shay Alexander was killed in the early morning crash in Bromley, south-east London.
The schoolboy, who was riding the scooter, was found suffering serious injuries and rushed to hospital, where he died.
It comes after a three-year-old girl was critically injured after being hit by an e-scooter while at the park with her family.
In a statement, Junior’s parents, said: “We are still in shock and struggling to come to terms with the fact that our beautiful son is gone.
"He was a wonderful son, brother, uncle, grandson and all those who knew him loved him.
"As we continue to deal with his unbearable loss we would ask that any witnesses to the incident please contact police.
"Any information – no matter how small – could be relevant."
A 20-year-old arrested on suspicion of failing to stop at the scene of a collision, and causing death by dangerous driving has been released on bail.
He was taken into custody and later released on bail pending further enquiries.
He is due to report back to police in early August.
