The Lancashire Telegraph has opened this online book of condolence to bring together tributes following the tragic death of 17-year-old Owen Jones.

Owen died following a motorbike crash in Rossendale earlier this week.

No other vehicles were involved in the incident, which resulted in Owen suffering a serious head injury he was not able to survive.

He passed away in hospital on Thursday, and his family are being supported by specially trained police officers.
