A Go Fund Me page has been launched in memory of an Aylesbury resident who has recently died.

The page was created on Monday, July 11 after it was revealed that Jorell Pascal, a young man from the area, had reportedly lost his life in an accident at the start of the month.

All the money raised from the fundraiser will be donated to Jorell's family.

An excerpt from the page reads: “I would like to start off by saying with a heavy heart how deeply sorry I am and my thoughts are with the family.
