Tributes have begun to pour in for the two Northumberland fishermen who were found dead yesterday (Wednesday).

Mark Arries, 26, from Amble, and Edward Ide, 21, from Blyth, were discovered in their beds in the morning.

Flowers have been left at Amble harbour in memory of the pair, who were both educated at Amble’s Coquet High School.

One touching message of condolence reads: ‘RIP lads. Always in our thoughts. Gone but never forgotten’.

Another says: ‘Such a shock. Thinking of everyone’.

Tributes have also appeared on social-networking site Facebook.

Writing on Edward’s page, Bryden Mcginn posted: ‘Rest in peace Eddy pal!’.

Tammy Montgomery wrote: ‘Rest in peace angel xx’.

Other mourners have described Edward as a good lad and one of a kind, while another said that he lost his life doing the job he loved.
