Tributes have been paid today to a nine-year-old British boy, who died after a fall while on holiday in Malaysia. Matthew Hamer played for a junior team at Ovington Cricket Club in York. The team's coach, Alan Fletcher, told the Yorkshire Post:
It's devastating news. He had been with us for three years and he was a smashing young lad.
Nobody at the club can really believe it. Everyone is upset about what's happened. On behalf of the club I would like to extend my condolences. We are devastated at this tragic event.
