Jay Whiston's mother paid tribute to her "loving, kind, generous, honest son" on Daybreak this morning. Caroline Shearer, and Jay's stepfather Michael said they were still in shock at the news of his death. Caroline said:
"We are not supposed to be here, not today, my son is supposed to be in school. He was an A-level student, studying law, he had his whole life mapped out, he was going to get married, he was going to have two girls [...] and now he is just gone."
