Mrs Watt continued: "Our wedding day was the most amazing day of our lives. He was the love of my life.

"Andy was the most infectious person I have ever known. He was loving, caring, funny, and a fantastic friend, brother, nephew and son.

"His friends and family are devastated, as am I, and we are going to miss him dearly.

"He was a popular figure who was loved by all. But most of all of he was my husband, who I miss more than words can ever say."
