Friends have been paying tribute to a young boy, who was found hanged at his home in Stockton.

The body of the 14-year-old, named by friends on Facebook as Keiran Stott, was discovered at his house in Droitwich Avenue, Stockton, at lunchtime on Thursday.

Cleveland police said there were no suspicious circumstances.

A Facebook page called R.I.P. Keiran Stott has been set up and posters have left tributes to the teenager.

One said: "Good night little fella! thinking of your family x"

Another wrote: "The Sky Has Gained Anotha Bright Star!! One Of the Brightest... R.I.P Keo."

Other tributes included: "Such a great lad, god bless his soul, thoughts go out to his family... rest in peace little one xxxxx."

One writer suggested he may have been a victim of bullying, although it is understood police have not found any evidence to back up that suggestion.

A Cleveland Police spokeswoman said on Friday: "Police were called to an address on Droitwich Avenue in Stockton around 12.30pm yesterday after the discovery of a boy's body. The body has been identified as a 14-year-old boy and the death is not being treated as suspicious."

The force said the boy's distraught family had asked not to be contacted by the media.
