TRIBUTES have been paid to a popular Huntingdon man who died suddenly at the home of a friend in the town.

Thirty-four-year-old Scott Harvey, a father of one, was found dead at a house in Ambury Road just after 2am last Tuesday (May 12).

Police initially launched an investigation into the death, saying it was unexplained, but have since handed the case over to the coroner's office.

A spokesman for Cambridgeshire coroner's office said an inquest into the death of Mr Harvey, formerly of Shelley Close, Huntingdon, was opened and adjourned on Monday (May 18).

She added that the cause of death was not yet known.

Tributes have been pouring in for the former St Peter's School pupil who has been described as a "true gent" and "a great bloke".

One friend who contacted The Hunts Post said: "Scott had so many friends who thought so much of him. He was very well-known and popular in Huntingdon and was very highly regarded."

Another friend said: "He was loved by all who knew him, whether they had known him for five minutes or all their life."

His shocked friends have also left tributes online on Mr Harvey's Facebook page.

One said: "I still can't believe it, and really don't wanna believe it. I have known you a long while and you did not have a bad bone in your body you are a great bloke and a very kind person, you will be missed."

Another read: "My thoughts go to Scott's family and anyone who feels anywhere near the way myself and other close friends feel."

Others added: "Scott has left a big void in many people's lives and he will be missed forever. My thoughts go out to his little girl, who will never know her dad.
