Following Friday’s tragic incident at the Snow Dome in Tamworth, we can now confirm that the 12-year-old boy who lost his life has been named as Louis Watkiss from Sutton Coldfield.
Police were called at 6.40pm on Friday (24 September) to reports that a child had been seriously injured at the Snow Dome.
Officers attended the location, along with ambulance crews. Sadly, Louis, died of his injuries shortly afterwards.
Louis’s family are being supported by specially-trained officers. We would ask everyone to respect the family's right to grieve in private during this extremely difficult time.
Staffordshire Police is continuing to investigate the circumstances with support from the Health and Safety Executive.
