Friends and family have rallied to raise cash to pay tribute to Kieran Rylance, the 21-year-old who died on October 16 after he stepped in front of a high speed express train at Rossington level crossing.

The cash will pay for the funeral of Kieran, who was set to become a dad in the coming months.

Since Kieran’s death, a number of firework displays have also been held in his memory, along with a sponsored walk from Rossington to Armthorpe and a balloon release.
