Kyron’s older brother Kaselle Lee organised the vigil, asking people to “just bring good energy”.

Speaking with the Observer he said Kyron ‘was liked by a lot of people because of his kind heart’.

He added: “He was a very selfless person and always ensured the people around him had eaten and taken care of themselves.

“He was straight and honest, and you had a hard time if he did not agree or thought it was a wrong choice for you.

“Kyron wanted the best for people and wouldn’t be afraid to express if they weren’t reaching their potential.”

“He had an ability to make everyone he met feel special despite their flaws and differences; he never passed judgement.”

The tribute added: “Kyron is not only going to be missed by me, his incredibly proud mother, but also his brothers, his father, those closest to him and his two dogs he loved so very much.
