Tragic bike lad Brandon ‘a free bird flying above’

Heartbroken dad Michael Wells said nine-year-old Brandon was "such a character. He was in a different class, a league of his own."
Distraught mum Shirene sobbed: "He was loved by everyone. He was never bad, never naughty.
"He is a free bird flying above me, such a special little boy."

The tragedy happened on Saturday morning at about 11.15am when Brandon, a pupil at St Joseph’s primary school, Broadstairs, was knocked down as he rode his bike in Dane Court Road where it becomes St Peter’s Road, at the junction with Dane Court Road between Margate and the family’s home in St Peter’s.
Within hours flowers, a teddy bear, chocolates and sweets had been left by friends and family of the little lad along with heartfelt messages of condolence for the family.
One read: "Bye M8. All our love and hearts go out to all the family."
Michael, a former solider with 3rd Battalion the Parachute Regiment, who is originally from Peckham, south east London, said: "When I went up there I could feel Brandon’s spirit. He’s tearing around those fields on his bike.
"He was a London lad through and through."
The family were being comforted by Father David Caine, chairman of the governors at St Joseph’s.
Brandon’s grandfather Mostafa Khademzadeh has flown back from his native Iran to be with his loved ones, including Brandon’s brother Reiss and sister Maddisson.
Police are appealing for witnesses to the crash which involved two cars, a silver Peugeot and a blue Ford.
