The parents of a six-year-old girl who was hit and killed by a car outside her Wolverhampton home while celebrating her birthday have paid tribute to her.

Daisy-May Brooks died on Saturday after being hit by a Honda Civic in Warstones Drive, police said.

Her parents said she was "funny, cheeky and always happy" and her loss had left a "gaping hole" in their lives.

The driver was not arrested but police investigating the death have appealed for information.

A statement by her family, including her mother Helen, said Daisy would missed by her brother, nine, and two sisters, aged 11 and eight.

"She would always be singing around the home," they said. "We are amazed at how much one little girl touched so many people's hearts.

"We don't know half the people that have been leaving flowers and mementoes outside our home.

"Daisy's death has left a gaping hole in our lives - the kids just want their little sister back.

"We would like to thank everybody for their support, family, friends all the staff at New Cross Hospital and the police officers."
