Police were notified at 5.50am on 28 August that Harry’s body had been discovered at Barry Intermodal Terminal.

His family paid tribute to the teenager, saying “life will never be the same again” following his death.

“Harry is a fun-loving son and brother where family time was always precious – making memories on holidays, snowmobiling in Lapland, parasailing and riding the biggest and scariest rollercoasters in America,” his family said in a statement on Thursday.

“Harry worked hard and enjoyed working alongside his dad as a carpet fitter on occasions, he always took pride in his work; he loved expressing to us whenever he received a tip from a customer.

“Life will never be the same again without our beautiful son Harry. There was never a dull moment when you were around as your presence was so vibrant.”

Police continue to appeal for witnesses who may have seen or heard a disturbance in the Cardiff Road and Ffordd Y Mileniwm area in Barry, between midnight and 1am on Wednesday.
