This is the tragic news that Nick Cave's teenage son, Arthur Cave, has died from injuries sustained after falling off a cliff at Ovingdean Gap, Sussex.

Sussex police reports: "A 15-year-old boy who was found with life threatening injuries on the underpass of Ovingdean Gap, having fallen from the cliff above, has sadly died in hospital. Members of the public carried out first aid on the boy before he was taken to hospital just after 6pm. He later died there of his injuries. The death is being dealt by the coroner’s officer."

Nick Cave and his wife Susie released a statement earlier today:

"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."
