The family of Ryan Harrison released this statement:

“Ryan was the biggest, brightest ray of sunshine for us. He loved life, his family and his friends. He was a brother, son and boyfriend - we were so lucky to have him in our lives. He always looked so smart and gorgeous. He was ambitious in life and loved to party.

“His family have been totally devastated by his loss, and we ask to be left in peace and given time to grieve. He had the biggest, kindest heart, and a bright light has been turned off in all of us that knew and loved him. Rest in peace Ryan, sleep tight our darling.”


Friends pay tribute to train death man

Friends have been paying tribute to a 22-year-old man, who died after he was hit by a train following a row at a railway station.

Ryan Harrison became involved in a confrontation with a number of other men at Guildford Station late on Saturday night.

Police are questioning three men on suspicion of murder.

Det Chief Inspector Iain Miller spoke to Ronke Phillips.

Police appeal for witnesses

Detective Chief Inspector Iain Miller said: "There were two groups of men who came together at the station as the train arrived. Two people tried to board the train, eight people tried to get off the train. There was a bit of an altercation which spilled onto the platform.

The result of that altercation was that one of the men was punched and fell between the moving train and the platform, that resulted in his death. There were at least eight people involved, other than the two witnesses.

We need more of those people to come forward and anyone else who was at the station or around the station at that time, between 11.40pm and midnight.

We have a lot of CCTV to trawl both on the train and in and around the station. That's being done by officers from British Transport Police.
