Mr Wright had worked as an architectural assistant with Perth land agents Bell Ingram.

The firm's managing director Graham Lumby said: "Everyone at Bell Ingram is shocked and saddened at the news of Euan Wright's tragic accident. Euan was a well-liked and valuable member of the team and will be sorely missed.

"Euan was a tremendously talented designer who had so much potential still to fulfil. His commitment to design and architecture was exemplified by his work for the RSPB.

"This was an interest he shared in both his personal and professional life. Our thoughts are with his family at this difficult time."
