TRIBUTES are still pouring in for a man who died after being hit by a train last week.
A shrine has been set up close to the spot where the body of Jamie Harding, aged 28, was found on the track near Lark Hill Road railway bridge, Worcester.
A memorial plaque has been donated by Timpson’s, as a permanent tribute to eventually replace the flowers, candles and other tributes which are still being left at the scene.
A tribute page set up on the social networking site Facebook is also still attracting comments from friends and family paying tribute to Mr Harding.
The page, called Rip Jamie King Harding, has 429 friends.
