They described him as "a huge motorcycling enthusiast and a willing apprentice" at a vehicle repair centre in Grantham.

They said: "It seems everyone our beautiful son knew he touched in very different ways and as a son and brother he was one in a million. The family have taken deep comfort from all of the beautiful messages they have received.
