TRIBUTES to Torrington teenager Daylin Brown have resulted in �4,763 being raised for charity.
This included collections at the church funeral service, a concert by local bands at The Plough, an auction at the Royal Exchange public house and a massive balloon release on Torrington Commons.
This money will be shared between the Lighthouse Club, which helps people involved in the construction industry in times of need and North Devon Cancer Care to help in the fight against breast cancer, from which Daylin's mother Lyndsay has suffered.
The Crown Prosecution Service is still reviewing evidence gathered by North Devon police following Daylin's death in February in a road traffic accident.

If not, company boss Keith Curtis could potentially face a charge of involuntary manslaughter.
Detective Inspector Dave Atkinson told the Gazette that directors of the company had been arrested following the accident, interviewed and released on bail.
A file had been presented to the Crown Prosecution Service and this was still being reviewed, he said. It had gone no further and no charges had been laid.
Daylin's grandfather Dave Kelly said the family did not blame the company and would be saddened to see any prosecution.
