THE HEARTBROKEN family and friends of a Stanley teenager who died after a collision in Ilkeston on Monday morning have paid tribute to him on Facebook.

Hundreds of comments have been posted on the teenager’s wall and a group has been set up in his memory.

Hayden Middleton’s dad, Roger, thanked everybody for their support and posted: “Roses are red, violets are blue, we can assure you we will all miss you.

“Sleep tight son, love forever, mum, dad, Kirsty and family.”

And his sister, Kirsty Middleton, wrote: “I loved you so much but fear you never knew just how much!

“Taken away without warning, not even a chance to speak to you one last time. My heart is aching.

“I only hope you’re up there looking down on us and seeing how much you are and will be missed forever. Love you always.”

Friends have posted photos of Hayden and wrote about their memories.

One described Hayden as ‘the life and soul of the party’ and another pays tribute to a ‘heartfelt kind and caring friend’.

His girlfriend, Leigh Woodroffe, posted: “I love you so much baby. You’ll be the best angel up there. I’ll be with you one day and we will be reunited.

“I miss you so much and love you more than anything in the world.

“Lots of kisses and sleep tight baby, sweet dreams.”
