The family of a 10-year-old boy who died following a collision with a lorry have paid tribute to a keen swimmer who “loved being in the water”.

Kastytis Dambrauskas had been riding his bike on his way to school when the incident happened on Weasenham Lane, Wisbech, at about 8.30am on Monday, July 16.

His family said: “Words cannot express the devastation we are feeling following the loss of Kastytis.

“He was a very much loved son, brother, nephew and grandson. He will be sorely missed by all.

“He was a keen swimmer and loved being in the water. If he wasn’t swimming he was listening to music.”

They added: “We are incredibly grateful for the help and support we have received as a family but we would now like to ask that we are left alone at this tough time to grieve in private.”

On social media hundreds offered condolences and tributes to Kastytis’ family.
