Mr Foster's family paid tribute to the former Millburn Academy pupil - who had a love for motocross biking and cars.

They said: "Samuel, our darling boy, was incredibly popular and had a huge circle of friends.

"He attended Millburn Academy before moving to Inverness College two years ago to study engineering.

"He also worked at the bakery at Marks & Spencer for two years and loved his motocross biking and cars.

"Samuel was a happy-go-lucky boy who was always happy and friendly. This picture is how we will remember him, always with a smile on his face.

"Samuel was the youngest of four siblings and words can't express how much he will be missed by his parents, Heather and Lenny, his brother, David, and twin sisters, Samantha and Kirsty, his nephew Reuben and niece Georgie.

"We would like to thank the incredible number of people who have sent us messages of sympathy - your kind words mean so much and are a reminder of just how popular and well-loved Samuel was.

"We hope he will always be remembered this way."
