In a statement, Mr Migdal's family said they were "devastated" and he would be "greatly missed by all who knew him".

Mr Migdal's school, the Saint John Henry Newman Catholic School, confirmed the incident happened after the Year 13 prom.

The school's head teacher, Clive Matthew, said Mr Migdal was "a continual source of pride for the school and was well known for his love of dance".

"He was a member of Prospects Fraternity, the dance troupe that captured the hearts of the school and the nation, doing so well in the BBC's The Greatest Dancer show in 2019," he said.
