Alongside the tribute, a fundraiser has been launched by a family friend to help give Tyler ‘the best send off’ possible.

"Tyler was one of the sweetest boys you could meet , he never had a bad bone in his body and always helped people whenever he could,” the fundraising page, which has already raised more than £10,000, said.
