MORE than 2,300 people have now paid tribute to drugs-death teenager Connor Aston.

And police have praised the 15-year-old friend’s for the “sensitive” vigil they held in his home village of Skelmanthorpe.

Connor died last Wednesday after collapsing with a heart attack after allegedly experimenting with drugs.

His 18-year-old friend Alex Walker also collapsed and is still detained in Huddersfield Royal Infirmary.

Dozens of the youngster’s friends mounted a silent vigil outside his Station Road home at the weekend.

A police spokesman said: “Our thoughts are with Connor’s family and all the friends he left behind.

“You all did Connor proud.”
