A book of condolence has opened at the school of a Swansea student who died on a cycle trip to Spain.

Michael Cura, 16, of Bishop Vaughan Catholic School, died on 21 July while on a 560-mile pilgrimage to Santiago de Compostela in the Galicia region.

Medical reasons are understood to be the cause of his death.

Three mass services are also being held at Sacred Heart Roman Catholic Church in Morriston where he was an altar boy.

Bishop Vaughan head teacher Paul White said Michael's "warm personality" and "positive attitude" made him popular with both students and staff.

"He deeply touched all of those who had the privilege of knowing him," he said.

"Michael will be sadly missed by the whole community here at Bishop Vaughan."
