"He will always be his family's pride and joy. Alesha and Rhodri were soul mates," Father Andrews said.

"Rhodri was a bright, talented 17-year-old who had so much to live for. He was studying for his A-levels at Bro Morgannwg school. He was a very popular boy, inside and outside of school.

"He loved his football, was a season ticket holder for Cardiff City Football Club, and loved going to the gym.

"He will be very sadly missed by family and friends, all who knew him."
