Musician Nick Cave has paid tribute to his teenage son who died after falling from a cliff.

Arthur Cave was found in the Brighton area yesterday at 6pm, Sussex Police said.

The 15-year-old had suffered life-threatening injuries and was taken to hospital but died later that evening.

Cave and his wife Susie said: "Our son Arthur died on Tuesday evening. He was our beautiful, happy loving boy.

"We ask that we be given the privacy our family needs to grieve at this difficult time."

Police said the death is not being treated as suspicious.

Arthur, who lived in Brighton, died at the Royal Sussex County Hospital. A coroner is now investigating his death.

Cave, 57, is an Australian musician and songwriter, best known as being lead singer of the band Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds, an alternative rock group formed in Melbourne in 1983.
