The family of a teenager who died in South America after taking hallucinogenic drugs during a tribal ritual have paid tribute to a much loved son and brother.

Henry Miller, 19, from Bristol, was in a remote rainforest area of Colombia with other tourists when he took the drug with a local tribe.

In a statement to the Bristol Post his father David Miller added: "Henry was an adventurous person who traveled extensively.

"He was polite, popular with a great sense of humour and was very much loved by his family and his many friends.

"We hope we can all be given the time and space to come to terms with what has happened and to grieve for our son and brother."
