Tributes after tragic death


The parents of a Poyntzpass student who was found dead in England at the weekend have described him as a “kind, caring, intelligent and very talented” young man.

The family of James Steen said the 23-year-old’s sense of humour had touched everyone he met.

Three men are on bail after being arrested over the “unexplained” death of Mr Steen, a student at Newcastle University. His body was found at a house in Rugby on Saturday after the ambulance service attended the property.

His parents, whose names were not provided by police, said: “We have lost our darling son. Words simply can not convey the pain we are currently experiencing. James enriched our lives, and the lives of others, in so many ways.”
