And they want everyone who knew 42-year-old Brian 'Scottie' Scott, of Hackney, to come and pay their last respects at his funeral on Monday.

Johnny Warren, Brian's brother-in-law, said: "He was the kind of guy who everyone knew. You couldn't walk down the street without people stopping to say hello to him.

"The family is in shock - especially Brian's three children - because it was just so sudden.

"We want people to come along to the funeral - it's open to all - and say goodbye to him."

The funeral takes place at the City of London crematorium, Aldersbrook Road, on Monday June 14 at 1pm.
