The family of Rayon Pennycook have released the following tribute to him:
“Rayon’s death has left us feeling devastated. In fact, there are no words which can accurately describe the pain we are suffering. It is unbearable.
“He was just a boy – a 16-year-old boy with his whole life ahead of him. He had hopes, dreams and aspirations, and was in the process of applying for an apprenticeship, which would have seen him start the next chapter of his young life.
“Rayon is not a statistic and he will not be remembered as such - he was a unique human being with a beating heart who was loved so dearly by his mum, dad, siblings, niece, nephew and friends.
"Rayon had a big heart and made it clear every day how much he loved us all.
“We are all living through the worst days of our lives and our hearts are utterly broken.
“Rayon – we are so proud of you and we will miss you always.”
