A man has been charged with causing the death of a two-week-old baby whose pram was hit by a car.

Ciaran Leigh Morris died when he was struck by a car as he was pushed along the pavement in Brownhills, Walsall, by his family on Sunday afternoon.

James Paul Davis, 34, has been charged with causing death by dangerous driving and causing death by driving while uninsured.

He faces further charges of failing to stop at the scene of a collision and failure to report a collision.

Davis, from Walsall, has been remanded in custody to appear at Wolverhampton Magistrates Court on Tuesday morning.

Tragic Ciaran suffered serious injuries and was rushed to hospital, but nothing more could be done to save him, West Midlands Police said.

In a tribute released on Monday, Ciaran's parents said: "Mommy's and Daddy's hearts will always ache, we love you more than anything.

"We didn't get to keep you for long but we are happy we had the chance to meet you, look after you and call you our son. Fly high angel."

Dozens of flowers have been left at the scene of the incident.

Lisa Ford, Ciaran's great-aunt, said: "We're a very close family…and it's ripped us all apart.

"We've all got to stay strong, we've just got to be strong. It's just heartbreaking."

Sgt Mark Crozier, from the force's serious collision investigation unit, said: "We've all been left numb by the sad death of Ciaran. He was just two-weeks-old and his life has been tragically taken away.

"To see the loss of someone so young is difficult for us as officers, but we know the pain is even greater for Ciaran's family.

"We'll be doing all we can to support them while also trying to establish what happened."
