Charlotte wrote on the crowdfunding page:

I can’t actually believe I’m having to do this if I’m honest.

"Due to Scott’s parents using every last penny to get our Scotty home, there’s no spare money left for his funeral.

"Scott loved a good party. So I’m asking all them that loved him to donate to help Tina, Julian, John, Jodie and Kyla give their son and brother and our dearest, most special friend the biggest send off anyone has ever seen.

It's understood Scott had been on holiday for two days when the incident happened.

Charlotte said he was on holiday with a friend who decided to go home that night, but Scott stayed out.

They first heard about the incident when Scott's boyfriend tried to call him on his mobile and the Spanish police answered.

Scott worked as a hair stylist at family-run Taylor & Co, in Loughborough, for two years.
