TRIBUTES have poured in for Barnsley schoolboy Conley Thompson following his tragic death.

The 7-year-old's body was found by police on a construction site on Bank End Road in Worsbrough at around 8.30am on Monday, July 27.

Police believe Conley entered a vertical pipe which pushed his clothing up around his body restricting his breathing.

Nichola Thorpe, head teacher at Worsbrough Bank End Primary, said: "Following the recent tragic event in Worsbrough, all of us at Worsbrough Bank End Primary school wish to offer our heartfelt condolences to the family and friends of Conley Thompson at this very difficult time.

"We especially want to send all the children who knew and were school friends with Conley, our love. Conley’s big smile and sparkly eyes will stay in our hearts forever; Bank End Primary will not be the same in September without him.

“Staff are being well supported by the Senior Leadership Team who in turn are being guided by Strategic Services at Barnsley Council.”

A campaign has been launched to raise money for a memorial for Conley. Donations can be made at http://ow.ly/Qb49S.
