PALS of a young Port boy who tragically collapsed and died will be praised in the Scottish Parliament for recording a song in his memory.

Youngsters at Newark Primary produced a poignant tribute to their late friend Jayden Orr, who passed away at the age of 10.

Their touching tune 'Jayden's Rainbow' has now been commended in a motion at Holyrood asking MSPs to recognise a law change bid in his honour.

It comes as his family mark two years since his tragic death.

Jayden's brave mum Kathleen, who launched a drive to install lifesaving defibrillators in schools after the tragedy, said: "It so touching that the song has been highlighted in parliament.

"We want to continue to raise as much awareness as we can."

Sunday was the second anniversary of Jayden's death and the family were moved by comforting messages from people in Inverclyde and beyond.

Kathleen added: "It means such a lot to read the messages of support from people we don't even know.

"They are thanking me for helping to make Inverclyde a safer place to live.

"But I just feel I am doing what any mum would do."

Friends in Rhodes, Greece, where the family went with Jayden on holiday every year, even lit candles in his memory.

Kathleen said: "We went back this year, it helps us feel closer to Jayden as we have so many happy family memories there and people talk about him all the time."

Ice skating star Jayden collapsed and died while training on the rink on August 4 in 2017.

In the months following his death his family set up a charity in his name and launched the Show Some Heart defibs drive with the Tele.

They raised thousands of pounds to put the devices into schools and public places.

Kathleen is also battling to get more of the machines registered with the Scottish Ambulance Service while working with local MSP Stuart McMillan to change planing laws so that all public buildings over a certain size need the machines as standard.

The local MSP has now tabled a motion asking parliament to commend Newark Primary for their support for the campaign.

It says: "The youngsters hope to help Jayden's memory live on through the song, which will raise money for the charity set up in his name."

Newark Primary pupils performed Jayden's song for Kathleen at a farewell assembly before the summer holidays, as they prepared to move on to high school.

His classmates also made a short film to help train people on how to use defibrillators.
