‘It is with a profoundly heavy heart that we report that this morning we lost Cameron,’ they added.

‘He passed away in his sleep due to a seizure which was a result of an ongoing medical condition for which he was being treated. The world is now undoubtedly without one of its brightest lights, but his spirit will live on through the kindness and compassion of all who knew and loved him.’
