FOUR-month-old Tyler Cupid, the baby boy featured in last week's Hackney Gazette, has died.

Tyler, who was born 12 weeks prematurely in Spain, where his parents were on holiday, suffered a heart attack last Thursday morning.

Money raised at a fireworks night fundraiser on Saturday by neighbours of Tyler's parents, Michael Cupid and Julia Hawthorne, of Hillstowe Street, Upper Clapton, will now go towards the cost of his funeral.

Tyler had been kept in a specialist baby care unit in Alicante.
