British singer Mick Hucknall has been left devastated after a young relative allegedly hanged himself.
Harry Hucknall, who is thought to be the Simply Red star's great-nephew, was found at his home in Cumbria, north-east England on Sunday night (19Sep10).
Local reports claim the 10 year old was being targeted by bullies at his school.
The singer was touring in Asia when he heard the news - and his spokesperson tells Britain's The Sun the star is "shocked and saddened" after learning of the tragedy.
