The parents of a young boy who died of coronavirus have spoken of their agony.

Fehzan Jamil, from Bradford, is thought to be one of the youngest victims of Covid-19 in the UK.

Speaking to Channel 4 News, Fehzan's parents, Tayyaba and Mohammed Jamil, described their son as a "really brave fighter" and "soldier".

They said he was a cheerful boy despite a number of underlying health issues, including epilepsy.

He died in hospital after contracting the disease and was laid to rest on Monday.

In an interview broadcast on Tuesday evening, his father Mohammed said: "There were four of us, now there are only three. The pain is indescribable."

His mother Tayyaba added: "I just can't describe our loss. Everything feels empty now."

Fehzan's family tried to shield him during the pandemic because his health issues made him vulnerable to Covid-19.

He was kept at home as much as possible and anyone who came into the house was required to wear a mask.

"We tried our best to keep him safe but somehow Covid got to him," Mohammed said.

Fehzan was treated at Bradford Royal Infirmary for several years and his family have praised the care he received.

Tayyaba said: "All of the staff were very good to us. They have known Fehzan for many years now and have always looked after him.

"They let us be beside him when he died. It meant a lot."

When Fehzan entered hospital, his family, who were used to previous trips, had not been too worried.

But coronavirus snatched him from them.

Mohammed said: "But this time turned out different, he never came home. Covid took him from us."

Other young victims claimed by the virus include a 13-day-old baby, thought to have no underlying health conditions, who was reported to have died with Covid-19 by NHS England in June.
