HUNDREDS of teenagers have held a vigil at the site where a teenage boy died in Barnsley.

Liam Antony Collier, 15, died on Monday (April 30) and was discovered by police in woodland off Millhouses Street, near the train station at Elsecar.

Liam, a pupil at Wombwell High School, was pronounced dead shortly after emergency services arrived at the scene. His death is not being treated as suspicious.

On Friday evening, hundreds of teenagers and their families flocked to the site to pay their respects and let off Chinese lanterns in his honour.

And on Saturday, some even did a charity walk in his honour to help raise money to go towards the cost of his funeral arrangements.

Liam’s family said: “Liam was a 'Jack the lad', he worshipped his family, his mother, his brothers and his sisters. Liam was a good lad, he loved life and his mates. He will be sadly missed and we are devastated by our loss."
