Their comments came after Luke Morgan, 26, and Emma Cole, 22, were jailed for causing or allowing the death of two-month-old Tyler Morgan in 2014 while they were living at Sunnymead Road in the town.

Jurors at Stafford Crown Court heard Tyler had suffered injuries prior to his death in 2014.

Tyler’s grandparents issued a statement thanking police for providing the family with answers over the incident.

“Losing Tyler was the worst day of our lives,” they said. “Not knowing how or why is the worst situation we could have been in.

“To think it’s been five years since we lost this beautiful baby boy and it’s only now, we are getting answers.

“We miss you so much, Tyler and not a day goes by where we don’t think of you.

“We would like to thank Staffordshire Police for not giving up and making sure Tyler has had a voice. 

“Our family has been ripped apart during the last five years. We now have to find a way of carrying on now that this trial has finished.

“We thank all concerned in reaching a verdict. Special thanks to the liaison officer who has supported us all through this awful time. We now need time to rebuild and heal our lives as a family.

“Tyler will always be in our hearts.”
