“He passed a close friend of mine Connie Morrison on the way there on his bike and the way back.
"But he had just passed her when she heard an almighty crash. She turned round and saw Kieran on the ground.
“His bike had hit the lamppost, he had fallen and landed on his head.
“Another person nearby called an ambulance and Connie administered first aid.
“The ambulance was there in five minutes.
“Another young lad passing by ran to Kieran’s house with his bike and his bag and told his parents. The butter had smeared everywhere and the bread was covered in Kieran’s blood.
