TEACHERS of the 14-year-old Widnes teenager who died in a bridge tragedy have described him as “quiet and conscientious”.

Guitarist Lewis Millward, also known as Lewis Edge, had played in a rock band at Wade Deacon High School the night before he died.

His school has released this photograph of him performing with friends in the school hall.

A spokesman for Wade Deacon, said: “Lewis was a well-respected member of the school community, who showed much promise.

“His teachers describe him as a quiet, conscientious and focused pupil with a positive attitude to learning; a hard worker with commitment and determination.

“He showed his musical talent as part of a school Rock Band, performing to audiences in the school hall this week.

“Our thoughts are with his family and close friends. We offer them our most sincere condolences.”

His body was found near the riverbank in West Bank yesterday morning, just yards from his home.
