Such a sad accident. I live in Sydney, Australia and it's always sad when I hear things like this back home in Elsecar.  Thoughts are with all his family and friends at this sad, sad time.

does billyjosmummy know something we all dont, think they did ask not to speculate out of respect for the family, and her you are doing just that!!!!

They haven't said anything new, apart from 'top lad', which is a statement rather than speculation. They haven't identified them in any way so what is your problem? RIP to the young-boy.

Imagine if I was given one moment,
just a single slice of my past.
I could hold it close forever,
and that moment would always last.

I'd put the moment in a safe,
within my hearts abode.
I could open it when I wanted,
and only I would know the code.

I could choose a time of laughing,
a time of happiness and fun.
I could choose a time that tried me,
through everything I've done.

I sat and thought about what moment,
would always make me smile.
One that would always push me,
to walk that extra mile.

If I'm feeling sad and low,
if I'm struggling with what to do.
I can go and open my little safe,
and watch my moment through.

There are moments I can think of,
that would lift my spirits everytime.
The moments when you picked me up,
when the road was hard to climb.

For me to only pick one moment,
to cherish, save and keep,
Is proving really difficult,
as I've gathered up a heap!

I've dug deep inside my heart,
found the safe and looked inside,
there was room for lots of moments,
in fact hundreds if I tried.

I'm building my own little library,
embedded in my heart,
for all the moments spent with you,
before you had to part.

I can open it up whenever I like,
pick a moment and watch it through,
My little library acts as a promise,
I'll never ever forget you

R.I.P Liam

I have never met the young man or his family, but am terribly saddened with the loss for the family.  My daughter went to school with the young man and was very supset by the news.  God bless you all xxxx
