A photograph pinned to the bench in a communal area outside the tower under the heading, “Stubzy RIP”, reads: “My darling son, taken too soon, fly high, love mum x”.

A woman, aged in her 30s, was arrested in connection with the incident, but has since been released on bail as police continue investigations.
