THE FAMILY of a teenager found dead in a burnt out car have described him a "kind, gentle person".

The body of 17-year-old Jacob Nolan-Parks from Pinvin near Pershore was discovered inside a red Peugeot 306 car which caught fire in a field close to Brearley Road, Aston Cantlow on Wednesday, January 25.

After the body was confirmed as Mr Nolan-Parks this week by police his heartbroken family paid tribute to him.

"Jacob was a much loved member of our family, his tragic passing has left us all devastated, he was such a kind, gentle person," a statement read.

"A hole has been left in all our hearts. We would like to thank family, friends and all other people who have been, and are still supporting us."

The death is not being treated as suspicious and a report has been issued to the coroner.

However, a post-mortem which took place on Thursday, January 26 failed to establish the cause of death and further analysis was set to take place.

Police do not believe anyone else was with the car when it caught fire.
