The family of Tristram Wallace has today paid tribute to him:

"Tristram was a loving son and grandson. Our only child, he was caring, funny and kind.

"He loved to travel, particularly in the USA, where he worked and travelled all over and even appeared in television commercials. He enjoyed sport and was a football fan, supporting Manchester United.

"We are completely devastated, not only by the loss of our devoted son, but the horrific way Tristram was taken from us in the prime of his life.  His hopes, dreams and aspirations have been cruelly taken away and our lives will never be the same again, we are not living, just existing.

"We would like to thank our friends, family and the local community for their kindness and compassion.  We would also like to thank Warwickshire Police for their ongoing help and support."
