An 18-year-old soldier has been found dead at an Army barracks in London.

Trooper Jack Burnell-Williams, from Bridgend, died on Wednesday after being found unresponsive at Hyde Park Barracks just before 16:00 BST.

According to reports, he was involved in the late Queen Elizabeth II's state funeral arrangements.

An Army spokesman said: "Our thoughts are with the soldier's family and friends at this difficult time and we ask that their privacy is respected."

Family and friends are set to gather in his memory at Bryntirion Football Club in Bridgend on Saturday afternoon.

His death is not being treated as suspicious.

The case has been referred to the coroner, a Met Police spokesman said.
