She said: “I have known him (Mr Clarke) for some time and I'm aware that he is an epileptic and takes medication for this.”
Speaking to The Evening Star after her son's death Mr Clarke's mother, Margaret, 57, said: “He loved his music especially R& B and rap and he loved watching DVDs.
“I have hundreds of his films at home I will miss his smile and I will miss his quietness as well.
“He would say a few words and then you wouldn't hear anything out of him.
“He was very fond of his own company.”
