1. Tributes for Sam Trott
As grieving locals flock to the lake where the body of two-year old Sam Trott was found tragically yesterday to lay flowers and leave notes, his grandfather has paid tribute to the little boy.
“Sam was so dear to us all and his premature passing is a tragedy we are still struggling to deal with,” Geoff Trott said.
“Since his diagnosis of autism, they’ve been unrelenting in their quest to create every opportunity for him to thrive and fulfill his potential.
“He was a happy, affectionate and loving child with an infectious smile, and brought so much sunshine into our lives.”
A candlelit vigil last night attracted over 500 people who paid their respects to the little boy and showed their support for his family.
