Tributes pour in for Fettercairn teenager

TRIBUTES have been pouring in for Fettercairn teenager Callum Beveridge, who died suddenly last week.

The popular 15 year-old was found in his home at School Road at approximately 3.30pm on Thursday. It is understood that the tragic discovery was made by his 16 year-old sister, Hannah.

The Mearns Academy pupil was the son of Bill and Eileen Beveridge and he lived in the village with his mother and sister. Bill, a teacher at Brechin High School, lives in Montrose.

Callum was a keen golfer, rugby player and footballer and he played for Brechin City's U15 side. This year, he joined many of his classmates on a skiing trip abroad.

His death has sent shockwaves through the community and his Bebo page has been inundated with comments from friends and family.

His sister, Hannah, said: "Mum misses you, so does everyone.

"I'm still in shock, and i'll never ever be the same without you. You knew exactly how to push my buttons, but I knew how to push yours too.

"I enjoyed every moment I spent with you Callum, and there wont be a day that goes by where I don't think of you.

"You are always with me. I love you."

One of Callum's closest friends said: "You are the most tolerant, patient and most forgiving guy I will ever meet.

"I'll never forget you; you will always be in my mind. I'll always remember you."

Another said: "Callum, everybody's going to miss you so much. I can't believe it.

"Seriously one of the nicest people I know. Who am I going to get to teach me how to golf now? Love you Callum. I'll miss you, forever."

Tributes were still pouring in as the Observer went to press on Wednesday.

A spokesperson for Grampian Police said: "We can confirm a teenage boy was found dead on April 9 at his home in Fettercairn.

"There are no suspicious circumstances. A report will be submitted to the procurator fiscal."
