“Scott was the most kindest, loving person with a heart of gold and nothing was too much if anyone needed his help.
“He adored his family and was a ray of sunshine in all our lives. Always the life and soul of a party, throwing a few shapes out on the dance floor, as he’d say.
“Scott was a fabulous dad to his beautiful little boy Thomas, who he doted on.
“All our family have been left devastated by the loss of our boy and no amount of time will ever heal us over our Scott. Gone far too soon.
“Scott was a very popular lad with an amazing amount of friends, who he adored as they adored him.
“We would like to express our heartfelt sympathy to Alex’s and Jay’s families and friends, as we know are as heart broken as we all are. Such a beautiful girl and cracking lad.
“We would like to say a massive thank you to all the public and family friends and Scott’s close friends during this horrendous time.
“We would especially like to thank all the emergency services and the very brave bystanders for their unbelievable, courageous efforts at attempting to give Scott the best chance who we will be forever grateful to.

“FOREVER YOUNG SCOTT.
“You’ll Never Walk Alone.”
