He was aged 19.

The police and an ambulance were alerted to a “report of a concern for welfare”.

Archie – himself a talented actor in the CBBC programme “So Awkward” – was declared dead at the scene.

His death is being treated as “unexplained but not suspicious.”

A file has gone to the West London coroner.

And an inquest is due to be opened next week.

A spokeswoman at the West London Coroner’s Court said:

“I can confirm the investigation is ongoing and no date has been fixed for the opening of an inquest.”
