Main article content
The family of Nathan Evans, 16, who very sadly died on the railway in Plymouth, are today paying tribute to him.
Officers were called to the line near St Budeaux Ferry Road railway station at 2.31pm on 8 November following reports of a casualty on the tracks. Paramedics also attended, however sadly Nathan was pronounced dead at the scene.
The incident is not being treated as suspicious.
Nathan’s mum said: “Nathan was a kind, loving, gentle and polite young man – he was the best son anyone could ask for and an amazing big brother to his siblings. He was training to be a chef and was already extremely good at his craft. We all loved his baked treats, his shortbread being a favourite in our household.
“He loved going on family walks to the creek or anywhere by the water, and most of all going to his nanna and uncle’s house for a Sunday roast and broken biscuits. Nathan had so much love and compassion for anyone he met, and I know his many friends meant an awful lot to him. He will be missed tremendously by everyone.”
Nathan’s family have chosen to release this photo of him. We would now ask for their privacy to be respected as they come to terms with their tragic loss.
