Councillor Joan Baird, who attended the vigil, said: “We send our deepest sympathy and love to his wife Caroline and mum and dad in USA”.

A message from Michael’s wife Caroline was read out in which she said marrying Michael was the “best day” of her life.

Flowers were laid and a minute’s silence was held.
