Tributes have been paid to the seven-year-old boy who tragically died after falling off a wall at a Harold Wood pub.

Harvey Tyrrell passed away on Tuesday night (September 11) after he fell off a wall at the King Harold pub in Station Road.

The youngster played football for Harold Wood Cougars under 8 team, and the club today has paid tribute to a ‘talented’ young boy who will be missed by everyone.

As a sign of respect the club has also cancelled all junior football matches set to take place at the weekend, while the senior team will wear black armbands and hold a minute’s silence before their game on Saturday.

A club spokeswoman said: “Harold Wood Cougars Youth Football Club are greatly shocked and saddened by the sudden death of one of our under 8s players.

“He was a talented member of the team and will be missed by everyone that knew him.

“All junior matches have been cancelled this weekend.

“All members of the senior team - Harold Wood Athletics - will wear black armbands in their fixture this weekend and a minute’s silence will be held.

“The following weekend all Cougars players and managers will also wear black armbands.

“Our thoughts and prayers are with the family, friends and team mates at this terrible time and we hope they will given space to grieve.”

Police were called by the London Ambulance Service (LAS) to the pub shortly after 5.20pm on Tuesday, to a report of a child who had fallen from a wall.

Officers and LAS attended and the seven-year-old boy was found with serious injuries.

He was taken to an east London hospital where he was pronounced dead at 6.33pm.
