I don't think articles like this should be open to comments until later, when the full facts are available.

Somebody's family is mourning a terrible loss today.

So you couldn't explain your own opinion.

I wasn't surprised.

Now quit posting on this thread if you're going to show ignorance and disrespect with every utterance.

To Brighton mum, I'd like to thank your son for trying to save mine, yes, I'm the dad and we have lost a fantastic young man. One who made most people laugh, one who would always try and help others.
For people who want to fight, throw insults, think of your family, your friends. I'm still feeling sick, knowing I'll never hear him laugh, see him smile, make me laugh (which he did regularly). No parent should ever lose a child, I'd gladly give my life to bring him back so his mother and sister could once more be with him.
For the positive posters, I say thank you...R.I.P. My Son, 'your L** R****** you do what you want!' Missing you loads, we all are!!

Well said. He was a quality young man and my son and a lot of his friends are totally stunned and dazed by what has happened. I was with them on Friday evening when they raised a glass to him. RIP. No parent should have to go through this and my heart goes out to you, your wife and all your family.

I also want to say that I never meant any offence in any comment I made. Apologies if anyone was offended. It was an absolute tragedy. I can't stop thinking about parents.
