More than £13,000 has been raised in just 24 hours to ensure he receives "the best send-off". 

A statement on the GoFundMe page said the death has left his friends and family "completely lost for words".

Louise Guthrie, who launched the fundraiser, added: "I thought it would be best for their family to have their personal time as they should not be having to deal with this.

"I have spoken with Kerry and we all agree that he deserves the best send-off. Any donations made will be highly appreciated.

"Leftover money will be given to Cameron’s family."

An 18-year-old man has been arrested and charged in connection with the death.

He is due to appear at Perth Sheriff Court on Tuesday, April 11.

A 17-year-old youth has also been arrested and released, pending further inquiries.
