Anthony, who was originally from Bradford but had recently moved to Cornwall, was on holiday in Thailand with his boss. The report didn’t state where in Thailand the accident happened.

His devastated mum, Clare Wright, 40, told the The Telegraph and Argus: “He was on his first holiday with his boss from work.

“He was an amazing boy, had just turned his life around and was doing really well.

“He had a good job and was going back to college.

“He had his whole life ahead of him and was the eldest of five brothers.  

“They are going to be lost without their big brother and we just want to get him home now.”

Anthony’s family have now asked for help in repatriating the 17 year old’s body back to the UK after he went on holiday to Thailand without taking out any insurance.

The family are trying to raise £5,000 and have set up a GoFundMe page online.

“Anthony  Ryan is a 17 year old boy who loved life and loved everyone around him”, the page reads.

“He found himself a good job and started to love his new life then tragedy happened.

“He travelled to Thailand with a friend and he had a tragic motorbike accident and died.

“The young boy was 17 and is now stuck in Thailand.  His family and friends are desperate to get him home to give him a proper burial.

“I am asking anyone to please get this young boy home, the most we can do as community is pull together and get Anthony home and let’s all give him the send off he deserves.”
