"Jack was a keen footballer and absolutely loved playing the game. He was a very intelligent boy. Maths and science were his favourite subjects. He was loved by everyone who met him as he was such a sociable child. He was caring and loving towards Bryn and was the best big brother in the world."

brother. He enjoyed playing in his sandpit and on his trike. He

loved animals, especially cats.

“Jack was due to start secondary school this week while Bryn was due

to start at playgroup.

“Both Jack and Bryn will be sorely missed by their family and

friends. The boys meant everything to me."

The police officer heading the inquiry - Detective Chief Inspector Ian Saunders, said he was not yet able to release the causes of the boy's deaths.

“We would like to offer our condolences to their mother Victoria Jones and the boys’ family on the tragic loss of Jack and Bryn.

“My officers are working hard to piece together the events that led to this appalling outcome so that we can pass the fullest possible report to the Coroner.

“I hope now that the photographs of the boys and their father are in the public domain that we will hear from more people who might have seen them in the seven days leading up to the discovery of their bodies on Saturday afternoon.”
