Family pay tribute to boy who died following workplace accident

The family of a teenager who died following an incident at a Bury business have paid tribute to “the most beautiful, handsome young man.”

Oliver Mawdsley (17) died after being involved in a workplace accident on Thursday.

A 41-year-old was arrested on suspicion of driving offences and gross negligence manslaughter, while a 36-year-old man was arrested on suspicion of gross negligence manslaughter. Both have been bailed pending further enquiries.

Oliver’s mum, Samantha, said her “brown-eyed boy Ollie” was courageous, loving and caring.

She added: “I just can’t imagine you not walking through the door, giving me the biggest cuddle and sloppiest kiss with your big lips saying ‘love you mama’.

“Going checking on your baby brother who adores you and would non-stop come into your room for you to play Fortnite or wrestle on the floor, with you giving the best cuddles. You were always there for everyone. You were the best little brother to Coby, the best big brother to Hector, and your other siblings.

“You were never shy to show your emotions in public – you were big and strong but so soft with a loving personality. You protected everyone with your big, kind, caring heart, and your beautiful smile that lit up the room and everyone else’s heart too. You were always there for everyone else.

“My heart is broken and I wish I could just bring you home with me where you belong. I wish I could hear your singing and giggling away in your room one more time. Walking into the wet bathroom and piles of towels you left on the floor, your 5pm phone call “just checking in mama to say I’m on my way home, what time do you finish work?” I just can’t ever accept you’re never coming home. I will give anything to bring you back, anything.

“Papa says he is so proud of you, your track days will never be the same, your 1 million questions about fast cars and the amount of Instagram messages you sent him. He will never get them again and is truly broken. Papa will hold all your memories so close to his heart – you were just like him, so care-free, daft, and dangly with your long limbs. We will all make you so, so proud, like you made us. You had so, so much more to give to life and you should never have been taken.

“Your life was just beginning. Me and Papa watched you grow from our beautiful little boy to the most beautiful handsome young man. Your life was only just starting –  you were saving to be able to buy the Crosser you always wanted and your car insurance. Your face would light up the world when you spoke about all your hopes and dreams, and you would have achieved them all.”
