A teenager who died in a tragic accident after he was said to have snuck into a funfair with some friends has been identified.

Mackenzie Croxford-Cook, 14, was found dead on Wednesday morning at the fair in Pencester Park in Dover, Kent.

The rides had not even opened to the public yet. Mackenzie and a group of six friends climbed the park’s fence to get in the night before, locals have said.

While inside, Mackenzie is believed to have scaled the ‘Body Count’ ride while his mates watched.

They reportedly begged Mackenzie to come down but he continued the climb to the top and then ‘lost his footing’ and fell.

Paramedics were called to the park but Mackenzie was pronounced dead at the scene.

Friends, family and other loved ones have since left tributes of balloons, flowers, photos and letters pinned to a bus shelter near the fair.
