The schools attended by the two boys killed in a crash in Cardiff on Monday have paid tribute to them.

A statement released by Bryn y Deryn, which Harvey attended, said he was a “popular member” of the school community.
A spokesperson for Bryn y Deryn also said it and the wider community of Cardiff was “very concerned” at the reports of disturbances that took place in the area following the collision.
The boys’ parents paid tribute on Wednesday and remembered fondly the “best friends”.
Kyrees’ school added he would also be remembered for his “ability to make those around him smile”.
