TESTS are being carried out on the body of a young Trowbridge man to determine how he died.

The Coroner's office for Wiltshire and Swindon in Salisbury said on Monday they were waiting for the outcome of the medical tests before deciding whether to open an inquest into his death.

The body of 27-year-old Louis Ayrton was found on New Year's Day at the Timbrell Street home he shared with his partner Danyika O'Hara.

A Wiltshire Police spokesman said: “We were called to the sudden death of a man at an address in Timbrell Street, in Trowbridge, shortly before 6pm.

“A 27-year-old man was sadly pronounced dead at the scene. His death is not believed to be suspicious and our thoughts are with his family at this very sad time.

“A file will now be prepared for HM Coroner.”

Family and friends of Mr Ayrton, have been left heart-broken by his sudden death.

It is understood Danyika O’Hara is a former pupil of St Augustine’s Catholic College in Trowbridge.

She and Mr Ayrton, a former pupil of Clarendon Academy in Trowbridge, had been in a relationship for some time.

Mr Ayrton was a self-employed personal trainer offering studio fitness instruction and nutritional advice to his clients.

He offered circuit training sessions locally at North Bradley Progressive Hall and North Bradley Peace Memorial Hall and at Pear Studios 714 in Warminster Market Place.

He had recently been working at Harridges Gym in Market Place, Warminster, where he was a popular addition to its staff.

Julie Harridge, the gym's owner, posted a tribute on social media, saying: "For once I am utterly lost for words.

"We are absolutely gutted by the dreadful news that Louis has passed away.

"He was like a breath of fresh air at Harridges and quickly became part of our gym family.

"My heart goes out to Danyika and Louis family."

Managers at Snap Fitness 24/7 gym in Trowbridge, who also knew Mr Ayrton, were too upset to talk about his death.

It is understood that Mr Ayrton had recently lost two close friends in Trowbridge within the past three months.

They were Fred Rogers, who died on December 20 last year, and 26-year-old Ashley Overend, who died in a car crash in Holland on October 1 on his way home from making a delivery in Germany.
