Duncan Monteith, 27 years old, was born in St Asaph and lived with his family in Glan Conwy. He died at the Countess of Chester Hospital on Friday.

His family said: “We are all devastated by Duncan’s death.

"He was gregarious and emotional and wore his heart on his sleeve. He was so open and warm hearted and got close to people very quickly – that is why he had so many close friends whose messages of support have been so supportive at this difficult time”
