Family & friends said goodbye to a much-loved Aylesbury teenager this week.

Plans to cut hours at two waste sites and close two in Buckinghamshire have been approved.

Luca Campanaro

On Wednesday, Aylesbury said goodbye to a much loved teenager who sadly died after a freak football accident.

Luca Campanaro was described by his mum, Joanne, as her "gorgeous, gentle giant".

The 14-year-old was the goalkeeper for Bedgrove Dynamos.

His mum Joanne thanked Aylesbury for helping to support them through this awful time:

"I can't thank you enough.

"The messages of support have made what seemed like an impossible experience to get through, possible.

"I couldn't ask for a better community.

"Every single person in Aylesbury has done my son proud, I couldn't ask you for anymore.

"There aren't words to say how much thanks I have."

The band caused quite a stir when they were spotted filming in the town in November.
