Family collect A-level results for student, 19, who died on stag do in Prague

The family of a teenager who died in a tragic boat accident collected their son's A-level results yesterday in a heartbreaking moment.

They paid tribute to the "amazing" young man, saying he was a "determined" student and that "everything was just coming up right for him".

Steve Roberts, 19, died during a stag party trip in Prague earlier in June, just two days after finishing his A-levels in Thornleigh Salesian College in Bolton, Greater Manchester.

He boarded an evening cruise ship down the river in the Czech capital but he disappeared just four minutes in to the journey.

It is believed he fell off the boat's top deck and hit the low railing before crashing into the sea below.

Rescuers found his body in the waters the next day.

His mother and stepfather said: “Steven did what Steven wanted to do, he lived minute by minute and lived life as he wanted. It’s like he went to the shop one day and picked up a bottle of motivation.

“He was the kindest person and always put others first. He had so much going for him and so much love to give. He was a credit to himself.”
