    Darren was my best friend at primary school (Cornwall street). I live in Australia now and was googling Darren to contact him after all these years. I am devastated that this is what turned up. I am so sorry for everyone who love Darren – he was the best mate I could have had and by what I have read grew in to a well respected and very much loved man.
    My condolences to his family this is a huge loss
