A teenager from Birmingham has died while on holiday in Lanzarote, his school has said.

Bishop Challoner Catholic College, in Kings Heath, said Logan Kehoe, who was in year eight, was "a much loved and valued young student".

Head teacher Kevin McEvoy said: "Our thoughts and prayers are for Logan and his family at this sad time."

He added that Logan was "highly regarded as an excellent young footballer".

Logan played at centre-half for Birmingham City Football Club's under-13s team.

The college said it was working with Birmingham Educational Psychology Service to provide support for children and staff.

Tributes have been posted on Logan's Facebook page.

Amy Porter posted: "Too Young To Be Taken Away From Us All, Gone But Never Forgotten , Gonna Miss U Logan, And That Cheeky Smile You Always Had, Words Can't Describe How I'm Feeling."

Olivia Mullen posted that Logan would "never be forgotten".
