A HEART­BRO­KEN com­mu­nity has ral­lied round to raise thou­sands of pounds for the fam­ily of two baby triplets who died in a “tragic ac­ci­dent”.

The five-month-old baby boys, named on­line as Noah and Char­lie, were found dead at a home in Brid­gend on Satur­day morn­ing.

The third brother is be­lieved to be un­hurt.

An on­line do­na­tion page has been set up by Siob­han Boyd, who de­scribed her­self as the god­mother of the triplets, and more than £7,000 had been raised by Tues­day lunchtime.

Ms Boyd said she had wanted to raise £5,000 to “take the fi­nan­cial stress off Sarah” – the boys’ mother.

She wrote: “Sadly this morn­ing (Satur­day) two of my beau­ti­ful god­sons passed away. I’m try­ing to raise money for their mother to help with the costs of flow­ers, etc.

“If any­body would like to help hope­fully we can raise enough to take the fi­nan­cial stress off Sarah at this dif­fi­cult time. Thank you all for read­ing xxx.”

Emer­gency ser­vices were called at around 10.05am to the ad­dress in the Wild­mill area. Po­lice have said there are no sus­pi­cious cir­cum­stances around the boys’ deaths.

A po­lice spokesman said: “The five-mon­thold chil­dren were con­veyed to hospi­tal where trag­i­cally they were later pro­nounced de­ceased. There are no sus­pi­cious cir­cum­stances sur­round­ing the deaths which are be­ing treated as a tragic ac­ci­dent”.

Trib­utes have also been paid to the boys and con­do­lences sent to their fam­ily.

Lee Ann Richards wrote: “Thoughts are with the fam­ily at this sad time, hope you raise the amount and more needed to give these an­gels a send off to be proud of xxx”

Paige Plant added: “This is so sad I ac­tu­ally can’t be­lieve it. I’m so sorry for the loss of those beau­ti­ful lit­tle an­gels.

“My thoughts and love go to­wards all the peo­ple that are dis­traught be­cause of this in­ci­dent”.

Su­san Stevens added: “Rest in peace lit­tle an­gels, our thoughts are with your fam­ily, love and hugs to you all x x x.”
