A 24-year-old dad has been killed in a car crash, leaving behind his six-year-old daughter and grieving partner.

Aiden Robinson died after his Audi was involved in a collision in Siddington, Cheshire last Thursday.

Paramedics took three other patients to hospital following the one-vehicle crash.

Aiden was with partner Kerry Topolinski for 10 years and father to little Aila-Rose Robinson, who was her ‘princess’ while he was her ‘king’.

“Me and Aiden spent 10 long amazing years together,” Kerry said in a moving tribute.

“Starting off as basically children, we grew together and had our amazing baby girl Aila-Rose Robinson.

“From the day she was born she brought so much joy and happiness to mine and Aiden’s lives.

“We shared so many unforgettable memories together as a couple and as a family with our princess girl.

“We had so many laughs that no one will ever understand. We cried together, laughed together, drove each other insane at times but the love was unconditional between us all.

“I am going to miss him more than any words wrote down can describe.

“I cannot believe he is gone I am truly heartbroken to have lost such a big part of mine and our little girl’s lives.

“She is absolutely devastated. We will forever miss you our boy, we love you more than anything.

“See you on the other side, love you always from me and Boo Boo (Aila-Rose).”

Aiden owned his own removal company and had six siblings; Paul, Liam, Leevi, Jessica, Cameron and Keiran.

Leevi and his father Brian also released a joint statement, saying: “Growing up, Aiden’s cheeky, magical smile and his lovable, kind, generous nature made him an instant friend, loved by everyone.

“Even from a young age Aiden was a person that would put others first before himself, always tending to others needs, always going above and beyond to help those who needed it the most.

“He was always such a lovely brother and friend, it’s hard to imagine life without him anymore.

“Aiden, always full of smiles and laughs would find the humour out of any situation.

“No matter the atmosphere and mood, simply his presence in a room was enough for others to have a good time and have a laugh.

“He always prided himself on his appearance, always at the barbers making sure his hair and beard were cut perfectly.

“Wherever Aiden went, Aila-Rose was there by his side, excited, holding his hand with the same cheeky smile as her father.

“Aiden truly lived for Aila, ever since her birth Aiden made it his life goal to make her upbringing and future the best it could be.

“Losing a father at only six-years-old is something no little girl should have to go through.

“However, Aila will grow up knowing her daddy’s love for her will never end and knowing how much she meant to her daddy, she was his whole world.

“She was his princess, he was her king.

“Whilst Aiden may have been taken away from us with this heartbreaking, tragic accident, his spirit, the love, laughs, funny videos and photos he gave us all will live on forever in our hearts and through his daughter Aila-Rose.”

Police issued an appeal for witnesses to come forward following the crash.

In a statement, Cheshire Police said: “Officers are appealing for witnesses and dashcam footage following a fatal collision in Siddington.
