Tributes have been paid to an 11-year-old boy who died at his home in west Belfast.

Leon Carlisle passed away on Wednesday night.

He was a year-8 student at St Mary's Christian Brothers' Grammar School.

Hundreds of messages of support have been left for his family.

A PSNI spokesman said: "The death is not being treated as suspicious."

The youngster's school paid tribute to the "popular" student.

It said: "It is with great sadness that the St Mary's CBGS community has learnt of the sudden death of Year 8 student Leon Carlisle following a tragic accident at his home yesterday evening.

"Leon was a popular Year 8 student and his loss will be sorely felt throughout the whole school and wider community.

"The thoughts and prayers of the St Mary's community are with his family at this sad time.

"Ar dheis-lámh Dé go raibh a anam Gaelach."
