Taylor-Jade Saul, Saul’s sister, led the tributes on Instagram, writing, “Seriously can’t believe I’m typing this right now.” I’m at a loss for words and have no idea what to say. Just so crazy how it happened. In one blink he was gone. He was way too young and shouldn’t have gone at 15. He was seriously my best friend and brother-in-one. Even though he did annoy me we had the best memories and will never be forgotten. “I’m so proud to call you MY brother and you will always be in my mind and by my side. Such a cruel world and how fast it happened I was literally just talking to my mum and it just happened in one blink after all the good memories and I wish we could’ve made more but all of them are still in my heart. Rest easy Saul.”
Devastated cousin Jack Pennington penned his own eulogy on the social media platform, writing: “Everyone who knew Saul knew he was the nicest lad about, had a good heart, polite and have u like no tomorrow. “Can’t believe I’m writing this, no other word describes it other than shock.

Shows what a cruel world we’re living in. Miss u forever my brother. Can’t say goodbye just see you later my mate love you RIP Saul, my brother.” Numerous pals have laid floral tributes at the scene.
