SHRINES and floral tributes have been put up to a "blue eyed boy" who died in a horror road collision.

Tommy Scott, 16, was killed when his scooter collided with a 4x4 during the evening rush hour in Chadwell Heath High Road on Monday February 25.

Loved ones have placed dozens of bouquets at the scene, close to the junction with Ashton Gardens.

Heartbroken family and friends have left messages of love to "the nicest boy you could ever meet."

And a large banner bearing the slogan "Rest in peace Tommy Scott", and covered in heart felt tributes, has been tied to railings at Martin's Corner, Dagenham.

Tommy's mum Patricia was too upset to talk about the tragedy last week.

Tommy lived in Custom House, Canning Town, but had many friends in the Chadwell Heath and Dagenham area.
