Paying tribute to him, Paul’s family said:
“Paul was our son, brother, partner and father and he was loved unconditionally. Paul’s death is beyond comprehension, and we cannot believe that he has died in such a violent and tragic way.
“Paul will be remembered for many things not least, his laughter, loyalty, and sense of fun.
“Paul will not be forgotten, and our world is a sadder place without him in it.”
