Police have named the 15 year old who died in Elsecar earlier this week as local lad Liam Antony Collier.

It comes as the family pays tribute to their “good lad”.

On Monday morning police were called to woods, where local youngsters play off Millhouses Street.

Liam, a pupil at Wombwell High School, was pronounced dead shortly after emergency services arrived.

His death is not being treated as suspicious.

Liam’s family say: “Liam was a 'Jack the lad', he worshipped his family, his mother, his brothers and his sisters. Liam was a good lad, he loved life and his mates. He will be sadly missed and we are devastated by our loss.”
