A fundraising appeal launched in memory of a 10-year-old Bishop's Stortford boy, who died after he was involved in a collision with a car, has already generated more than £4,000.

He was cycling with his father along Obrey Way – which links Thorley Park with the A1184 St James Way – when he was involved in a collision with a Vauxhall Corsa at around 2.15pm.

The injured youngster was taken to Addenbrooke's Hosptial in Cambridge in a critical condition.

The JustGiving appeal says: "Family will miss him dearly, but they know he would always have wanted to help other people.

"It meant so much that they could be close by to him with the fact that Daniel's condition could change at any time."

As of Wednesday morning, the appeal total stood at £4,180 plus £833.75 in Gift Aid. To support the appeal, visit the Daniel Bennett 2020 team fundraiser for the Sick Children's Trust on JustGiving
