Vaughan's family paid tribute to him after the attack saying he was a "fantastic person".

"A Dad, son, bampie, brother, uncle, friend, mentor, but most importantly a fantastic person 

"We will carry you in our hearts always. The memories will always make us smile."

His family are still being supported by specialist officers.
