Tributes paid after Rock School's Lil' Chris dies aged 24

Lil' Chris has died at the age of 24.

The singer found fame in the mid-2000s on the UK reality show Rock School, which starred Gene Simmons.

It is understood that he had suffered from depression.

Police said in a statement: "Police investigating sudden death of a man in Lowestoft can confirm they are not treating it as suspicious."
