On Sunday 20 August, the family of seven-year-old Julian Cadman, a British-Australian dual national, said he had died in the Barcelona attack.

But in a statement released through the UK Foreign Office, Julian's family said he had died.

"Julian was a much loved and adored member of our family. As he was enjoying the sights of Barcelona with his mother, Julian was sadly taken from us. He was so energetic, funny and cheeky, always bringing a smile to our faces. We are so blessed to have had him in our lives and will remember his smiles and hold his memory dear to our hearts," the statement said.

"We would like to thank all those who helped us in searching for Julian. Your kindness was incredible during a difficult time. We also acknowledge we are not the only family to be affected by the events, our prayers and thoughts are with all people affected."

The family said they will "not be making any further comments on this tragedy."
