The family of a 30 year old man killed in Exeter have paid tribute to him.

“He lived life to the full and was the life and soul of the party. We are all very proud of the person he was, and are particularly proud of the recent fundraising work he did raising money for charities.

“We miss him dearly but will forever have many, many happy memories of him.

“We ask for privacy at this horrendous time while we as his family come to terms with our tragic loss.”
