A proud new dad has paid tribute to his little brother – who died a year ago – by naming his baby son after him.

Schoolboy Lewis Eddleston died, aged 13, in November 2012. He drowned accidentally in a ditch in Edenthorpe, Doncaster, while playing out with friends just a mile from his home.

Now, after a very tough year for the family, Lewis’ older brother Martin, aged 30, has become a dad.

And, in tribute to the brother he lost, he and his partner Lindsay Clarke, 29, from Wheatley Hills, have named their newborn Finley Lewis Eddleston.

“We thought this was a nice way of keeping his memory alive,” said Lindsay.

“Martin’s family were over the moon that we had decided to give him Lewis as a middle name.

“It’s been a tough year, but everyone has pulled together.

“He is absolutely gorgeous,” she added.

“He’s a real wriggler. I don’t think it’ll be long before he’s rolling over.”
