The family of a teenager who died on Sunday 24 May after he was found hanging from a tree in Cheltenham earlier that week, have paid him tribute.

Adam was the most wonderful son, brother, grandson, nephew, cousin and friend. He will be missed by so many. The boy we knew and loved was an outdoorsy teenager who loved skateboarding and going out with his friends. He loved animals and was great with his cousins.

Adam was intelligent and worked hard at school, and had a particular interest in history and politics. He was well thought of by his teachers and peers alike.

Although in some ways Adam was independent and carefree, he seemed quiet, sensitive and serious in others. As Adam's parents, we value the importance of charities promoting good mental health in children and young people.

Our beautiful boy will be with us forever.

– Family of Adam Tharia
