More than £4,000 has been raised towards a fund in memory of two young Inverness friends who died within days of each other.
Michael Williamson was found dead on Monday morning in his home in Hilton, just days after one of his best friends, Martin Shaw, died in the South Kessock area on Saturday afternoon.
Both men were just 23-years-old. Police have said that there were no suspicious circumstances to either death.
Friends of the two men have set up a memorial fund online in their memory, which last night had raised £4,190 in just 24 hours from 236 people.
The funds will be split between the two men, with a memorial bench planned for Mr Shaw while the family of Mr Williamson have requested that their share is donated to the Help for Heroes charity.
The fund is aiming to raise £6,000 towards the two projects.
Earlier this week the family of Mr Williamson described him as a “people person” who was “cheery and always happy”.
He had trained as a chef and latterly worked as a barman at The Kings Highway Wetherspoons pub in Church Street.
Hundreds of people have paid tribute to the young men online, while a two-minute silence will be held before every match in the Innes Bar Highland District Amateur Football League this weekend.
A police spokesman confirmed officer’s had received a report of Mr Shaw’s death at a house in South Kessock around 5pm on Saturday.
Mr Williamson’s death was reported in the Hilton area of the city at around 8am on Monday.
The spokesman said reports would be submitted to the procurator fiscal.
