"We would like to thank everyone for their help and support during this difficult time. We would like to express our gratitude for all the messages of sympathy and support from both the local community and wider public across the nation.

In particular we would like to thank the people involved in the search – the police, RNLI, HM Coast Guard and the Burnham-on-Sea Area Rescue Boat (BARB). We are still extremely traumatised but very grateful that it appears Dylan has been returned to allow us to bury our son."
