Tributes have been left online for 17-year-old George Verrier, who died in Bromley on Sunday.

Friends have taken to social media sites to leave messages for George, who is believed to have been a former pupil at The Ravensbourne School, in Hayes Lane.

He is thought to have been involved in a 20 strong altercation in Southborough Road at around 1am on Sunday morning, where he sustained a head injury.

He was later taken to an east London hospital by the London Ambulance Service, but died shortly after 6pm.

Taking to Facebook, Pete Mouncer wrote: “So upset awesome kid to go so young. One of the best George xx”.

On Twitter, David Speed said: “So sad about George Verrier. RIP kid. Far too young”.

It is thought George is the second person from his Ravensbourne year group to pass away this year, after 17-year-old Jack Bowker died when his moped hit a parked car in Downham six months ago.

Ayse Ozcan, on Twitter, said: “I cannot believe George Verrier is dead. Another one from TRS in my year again this year! RIP Jack Bowker and George”.
