Gregg and Lindsay Nunney said: “We are heartbroken to tell you that after three-and-a-half years of fighting neuroblastoma, our brave and beautiful boy passed away this morning.

"He was very brave, and it was peaceful and pain free at the end.”

Sebastian had inspired members of the community to hold fundraising events in the hope that he could access medical treatment not available on the NHS.
