Archie was pronounced dead on the scene in an "unsolved but not suspicious" death that is not being investigated by police, who handed a file to the coroner.

His friend Small, who was also clumsy as Rob Edwards, said in a tribute: “To my brother Archie. I still can't quite understand why you passed.

“You still had so much life to live and I would give anything so that you can go on living it.

“My heart aches all day and I think of you every day and I just wish I could talk to you again so you would know how much I loved you.
