Tributes have been paid to a "highly popular" Cardiff teenager who died suddenly earlier this week.

Floral tributes have been left at Whitchurch High School where Peter Baldwin was a pupil.

The 13-year-old is understood to have died in hospital on Tuesday after recently falling ill.

The school's head teacher Huw Jones-Williams said Peter "was probably destined to be a future head boy".

He added: "The school community are shocked at his sudden death but are united in celebrating his many successes.

"Whitchurch prides itself in being a family school and our thoughts and prayers go to Peter's parents, younger sister and all his family and friends at this tragic time.

"We are privileged to know him, mourn his loss but celebrate his life."
