Lee's family said: "In loving memory of our beloved son Lee David Skeldon who was much loved by his family and all his friends. Lee was a kind, thoughtful, hard-working lad who was very close to his brothers, Carl, Wayne, Scott and his younger brothers Corey, Thomas and Alfie.

"Lee you were the apple of my eye! I can't believe you’re gone.  Mum will never forget you, my beautiful son, love Mum and Shawn xxx."
