Popular barman Lee Harlow, 32, tragically died at the spot nine days ago.

As well as a huge gathering of bouquets and cards, individual flowers - many of them roses - have been tied to railings on both sides of the bridge.

The first flowers were attached by Mr Harlow's family, with members of the community since contributing to the heartfelt effort.

There are also candles, beer bottles and touching notes left at the scene.

One reads: "Gonna miss you babe. A hole in my heart that can never be filled. Love you forever."
