Fourteen-year-old Logan Folger died at Sheffield Children’s Hospital after being rescued from the River Rother, close to the Chesterfield Canal, by emergency teams.

The opening of Logan’s inquest heard he was trying to save one of his friends from the water when they got into difficulty.

Stacey says the items have huge sentimental value for the family.

“Logan loved both of these things and barely went anywhere without them," she added.
