TRIBUTES have been paid to an "inspiring" Borders teenager who died in Glasgow last week.

Police confirmed an 18-year-old – named locally as Campbell Hunter, of Peebles – died after being found injured near a Strathclyde University building on Wednesday (December 9).

Now tributes have now been paid to the teenager by community project Tweed Reads.

The group posted on Facebook on Thursday (December 10): "We lost one of our best this week.

"One of the brightest, most brilliant people who put heart and soul into everything he did.

"Campbell Hunter was a loyal leader of the Tweed Reads team: someone who inspired and engaged; someone whose ebullient nature and irreverent sense of humour will be sorely missed.

"He was a true original. Someone who was incapable of being anything other than himself – and we loved him for it.

"The Roman philosopher Seneca said, 'Not how long, but how well you have lived is the main thing'.

"Campbell, you gave so much in your lifetime to others and meant so much to so many people, you definitely lived well and will be incredibly deeply missed.

"You were life and soul, head and heart.

"A wonderful, wonderful individual. Rest in peace."

Police say they are not treating the teenager's death as suspicious.

Chief inspector Craig Walker, local area commander for Glasgow, said: "Around 1.50am on Wednesday, December 9, 2020 emergency services were called to a report of a man found injured in Rottenrow, Glasgow.

"An 18-year-old man was taken to Glasgow Royal Infirmary for treatment where he died a short time later.

"There are no suspicious circumstances and a report has submitted to the Procurator Fiscal."
