Tributes have been paid on social media, and friends are planning to gather at a cafe in Faversham later today to pay their respects.

Local performance poet Alex Vellis wrote of his shock and sadness:

"It is a pretty dark time for artistry in my (our) little bubble of creativity in Kent.

If you are local to Canterbury, these characters all touched you in some way whether it be through vibrant music playing in the streets, the odd conversation sitting at a pub, blowing up in the open mic, with you all night at a rave, or even on the radio. They all had so much to give.

Another wrote:

"Words cannot express the pain that losing not only a dear friend brings but knowing two other beautiful young men have also passed in these most tragic of circumstances.
