The family of a Deeside teen who died after he was hit by a car have paid tribute to his “huge heart”.
Mark Smith died from his injuries after he was knocked down while at an 18th birthday party with friends at about 10.30pm on Saturday.
The collision, which involved a red Volskswagen Polo, took place outside Craigievar Community Hall, just outside Alford.
In a statement released this afternoon his family said: “Mark was a much loved son, brother, grandson, nephew, cousin, boyfriend and pal to so many.
“He had a huge heart, he was cheeky, funny and so loveable which made Mark great to be around.
“As a family we would like to thank everyone for all their support and loving and kind words about Mark.”
