The family of a 15-year-old boy from Ilford who sadly died at Newbury Park Underground station in June have released a tribute to him.

Zain Pervez, pictured, was described by his loved ones as a wonderful, sweet boy, who had a calm temperament and always took things in his stride. 

His family said: “Being the eldest of four, Zain was always special to his siblings. He would always look out for them and care for them in many ways. He was very responsible and protective and made sure his siblings studied and behaved well. 

“As Zain grew from a boy into a teenager, we could see the man that he would become – strong, steadfast and assured. He helped us out with household chores and always showed willingness to make us proud. Zain loved football and playing computer games with his friends.

“Zain was a teenager growing into a young man – a young man with so much enthusiasm and with so many plans for the future.

“Zain was adored by his family and we are so saddened by this news. To lose our son is heart-breaking – it has come as such a shock to us all. Zain will be dearly missed.”

Officers from British Transport Police and paramedics were called to Newbury Park Underground station shortly after 2pm on Friday 12 June following a report of a casualty on the tracks.

Zain sadly died at the scene. 

Officers are not treating his death as suspicious, and efforts are currently underway to prepare a report for the coroner.
