Robbie Williams' former lodger found dead

Thursday December 3, 2009

A close friend of Robbie Williams has been found hanged near the singer's English mansion in Compton Bassett, Wiltshire.

Aaron Vickers, 25, lived with the former Take That star for over two months at his home this spring.

"Robbie would like to express his profound sadness at news of Aaron Vickers' death and he sends his deepest condolences to Aaron's partner, his family and his friends," Robbie's spokesperson has said.

Meanwhile, Aaron's friends and workmates have also spoken of their grief. 

Mick Green, his colleague at the hairdressing salon where he worked  said: "He was larger than life and touched everyone he met. This is such a waste."

"He was unique," another friend says. 

Police are not treating the tragedy as suspicious.
