Tributes have been paid to a much-loved young Irvine man who was tragically found dead in an Irvine park.

Twenty-year-old Jamie Mcinnes body was discovered in Bourtreehill Park on Sunday, with police saying there were no suspicious circumstances.

A Crowdfunding page has since been set up to help to pay for his funeral - with funds already at more than £1,100.

Writing on the page, Nicole McQueen said: "Weʼre raising £1,000 to help Jamie’s family with funeral costs.

"Jamie was a well liked boy by many people and we’re in hope people who knew him as the bubbly, caring person he was would be able to contribute towards this no matter how small the donation may be. 

"It would make things that slight bit easier for the family to put him to rest and give him the send off he more than deserves."

A former employer of Jamie has since paid tribute to the Bourtreehill resident saying the young man 'will never be forgotten'.

Imran Ali, of Bourtreehill Supermarket, said: "Jamie worked for us for 4 years if I recall right. My family and staff are totally devastated by his death at only 20 years old.

"Jamie was quiet, polite, smart, very hard working and worked seven days a week using all his wages to help support his family including two wee sisters.

"Everyone in Bourtreehill that came into the shop always seen Jamie hard at work. He will never be forgotten and my family and staff will never stop thinking of Jamie. No one will be able to match his dedication and hard work he did at our store. He became a big part of us at our family run business."
