The devastated parents of a straight-A schoolboy have paid tribute to their ‘amazing’ son after he was found dead on a railway line.

Fraser Bennett, 14, was found on the tracks at 10.30am on Wednesday by emergency crews who dashed to the scene in Blackminster, Offenham, Worcestershire.

British Transport Police are not treating Fraser’s death as suspicious.

In a statement, his heartbroken family said: ‘Fraser was an amazing young man, loved by everybody who knew him.

‘Our hearts are broken, and we are struggling to come to terms with our loss.’

The popular teenager attended Prince Henry’s High School, in Evesham, Worcestershire, where he excelled both academically and in sports.
