Boy of ten died from head injuries after accident at Topshop store

Oracle in Reading

Reading coroner's office said an inquest had not yet been opened as investigations are still under way.

They discovered the boy lying unconscious on the floor with a serious injury to his head.

Detective Superintendent Paul Hayles of Thames Valley Police said officers were "supporting the family at this very hard time".

Kaden was rushed to the Royal Berkshire Hospital but was pronounced dead on arrival.

A boy was found suffering serious head injuries after an incident involving shop furniture, Thames Valley Police said.

An investigation by the Health and Safety Executive (HSE) who assess work-related incidents that have resulted in death and physical injury, will likely take place once the incident is referred.

A spokeswoman said: "Our thoughts are with the family during this hard time".

A 10-year-old boy who died at a Topshop store in Reading on the first day of half-term has been named as Kaden Reddick as his family said he "never knew how many people truly loved him".

Bunches of flowers were left against the shop's closed shutters yesterday with passers-by pausing to look at the tributes.

"We are contacting all parties involved in order to carry out our investigation into this tragic incident".

One card, which was unsigned, read: "RIP little man".

Topshop's board and staff said they were "deeply saddened" by the "horrific" incident.

'We are thoroughly investigating all the events surrounding this extremely sad situation'.

"All our thoughts are very much with the family at this hard time".

Paramedics treated him in the shopping centre.
