Tributes have been paid to a 17-year-old boy who died after becoming involved in an accident on the River Thames.

Gloucestershire Constabulary announced the discovery of a corpse near Lechlade-on-Thames yesterday afternoon, with the youngster reported missing the previous evening.

He has since been named as Jake Smith from Swindon, Wiltshire.

A statement released by his family said: “We unfortunately lost Jake in a tragic accident. The support and messages we have received have been overwhelming, and shows the love that people had.

“Jake will be missed by all his family and friends.

“We would like to thank the emergency services, the community and especially The Riverside for their kindness and support.

“Although this was a tragic accident, we urge people to stop and think before they jump into the river.”

Paying tribute on Facebook this morning, his dad Alan said: “Our son and loving brother to Megan Smith and Lucy Smith, you were taken away from us now nothing feels the same inside. We love you with all our hearts son R.I.P.”

Yesterday evening, his friend Tayla said: “My heart hurts… I will miss you forever my Jakey, fly high angel.”
