According to the BBC, a statement released by Scott’s family said they were “utterly devastated with the tragic loss of our beloved Scott”.
”Scott, like many artists, wore his heart on his sleeve and that was evident in the lyrics of his music and the content of many of his social media posts.
“He was passionate, articulate and charismatic, as well as being one of the funniest and kindest people we knew. Friends and family would all agree that he had a brilliant sense of humour and was a great person to be around.”
The band have now also shared a statement on their Twitter account - read it below.
