FRIENDS and family have been paying touching tributes to a Redditch man who fell to his death at the Kingfisher Centre.

Luke Barron, aged 30, died on July 5 after falling from a height and people have taken to social media to pay their respects.

On Facebook, David Morgan said: "Cant sleep knowing I'm never going to hear jokes banter again.

"The stuff we went through together the good and bad we always picked each other up shoulders to cry on. You help me turn my life around."

Jay L Wakey also left his tribute on Facebook, he said: "A truly beautiful human being who was loved by so many. The world just became a little less funnier place to be."

Rianne Hawkins added: "One of, if not the biggest character I ever had the pleasure to know. He would light up any room and people would literally cheer his name as he walked in to a room."

Emergency services were called to a car park at the centre at around 8.55am on the day of the incident where Mr Barron was found in cardiac arrest.

West Midlands Ambulance Service said: "We sent two ambulances and a paramedic officer to the scene. Despite the best efforts of ambulance staff nothing could be done to save him."

West Mercia Police are not treating the death as suspicious, an inquest was opened and adjourned today (July 10) by Worcestershire senior coroner David Reid.
