17-year-old Joe Stewart was found dead at his house in Inverness on Tuesday night. His death comes less than a fortnight after the death of his son, Joe Junior.

The newborn passed away at a Glasgow hospital aged four weeks after suffering severe abdominal and intestinal complications.

The teenage father leaves behind his 18-year-old partner Allanis Stirling and her other son, Connor, aged one. Family and friends have paid tribute to the trainee decorator, with his partner uploading a family photo shortly after his body was discovered.
