Following a tragic accident in which a 10-year-old child was killed, Topshop has recalled the display units involved.

Kaden Reddick, from Reading, suffered serious head injuries in an incident involving a display at the shop in town's Oracle shopping centre on Monday afternoon.

The 10-year-old boy who died after a piece of furniture fell on him in Topshop has been identified locally as Kaden Reddick from Reading, Berks.

It is reported that the boy pulled on some type of barrier in the store, which crashed down on top of him.

He was pronounced dead in hospital just an hour after the incident which happened at 4.15pm, Thames Valley Police said.

POLICE and health and safety officers are investigating how a boy died after being fatally injured in a Topshop store in Reading on the first day of half-term. He was taken to the Royal Berkshire Hospital, but was pronounced dead.

An inquest is yet to open and no date for a postmortem examination has been set.


Bunches of flowers were left against the shop's closed shutters and passers by paused to look at the tributes.

A unsigned card left outside the store read: "RIP little man".

A spokesman for The Oracle said: "We can confirm an incident took place within a retail unit at the centre this afternoon, resulting in the injury of a child".

In a statement Topshop, which is owned by the billionaire Sir Philip Green, said: "The Topshop board together with thousands of..."

Topshop has said its thoughts are with Kaden's family and they were "investigating all the events surrounding this extremely sad situation".

'All our thoughts are very much with the family at this hard time.
