– Jan and Phil Dalton, Neil's parents
We are just a normal family and we cannot believe what has happened. Neil was a caring, thoughtful and witty young man, who never thought twice about helping others.
He achieved so much and made so many friends in such a short time. We are so very proud of him.
Neil was a hard worker and very academic. He kept himself fit and was very sporty; involving himself in many football and cricket teams over the years. Neil enjoyed cycling and running and was always up for a challenge.

A £5,000 reward for information is being offered on the first anniversary of the shooting of a man from Leicester at a Birmingham nightclub.
Crimestoppers is offering the reward for information leading to the arrest and conviction of the person responsible for the murder of 35-year-old Sylvester Koroma.
He was shot at close range in the stomach just before midnight at The Rainbow Nightclub in Digbeth on 10 August last year and died from his injuries a week later.
Despite extensive enquiries police still need people who were to come forward with information about the night of the shooting.
Detective Chief Inspector Sab Johal, said:
We know that there were hundreds of people at the event who would have witnessed the shooting and we need these people to speak to us.
The murder has left a family devastated and officers remain determined to bring whoever carried out the shooting to justice.
I believe the answer to the murder lies in Leicester. Sylvester was from the city and travelled to the club with several associates, also from Leicester, but so far none of them have come forward to co-operate with or assist police. It is vital these people speak to us.
The mother of a man from Leicester who died after being shot outside a nightclub in Birmingham is appealing for information to help catch his killer - a year after his death.
Sylvester Koroma, 35, was shot in the stomach outside the Rainbow Warehouse on Digbeth High Street on 10 August last year.
He died a week later in hospital.
