Tributes have been paid to an "inspirational" Glasgow man who died after a collision with a car in London.

Andrew Brown, 23, who was a former Vice-President of the Queen Margaret Union and a frequent AmeriCamp coordinator, died on Tuesday.

He was rushed to intensive care at London's St George's Hospital following the crash on Friday, November 1 but could not be saved.

AmeriCamp, which offers work placements for Brits to deliver camping activities in the US, have launched a scholarship in honour of Andrew, who worked closely with special needs kids while there.

A spokesperson for the firm said: "It is with a heavy heart that we report that AmeriCamp’s Andrew Brown has tragically passed away at the age of 23.

"Andrew was an instrumental part of our team who helped thousands of people do AmeriCamp.

"He truly pushed the benefits of working with people that have special needs and made a massive difference to the lives of so many.

"He was a huge part of Camp JayCee in Pennsylvania and will be deeply missed by both sets of friends that he made in the UK and USA."

Lee McAteer, AmeriCamp founder added: “Everyone at AmeriCamp and Invasion Camp Group is truly devastated to hear the tragic news.

"Andrew was the life and soul of the party. His huge smile and caring personality shone like a ray of light.

"Today, the world is darker without him.

"He might not have been here for long, but his legacy will last forever. With the blessing of Andrew’s family, we have decided to create the Andrew Brown Special Needs Scholarship which will allow someone each year to continue the great work Andrew did at Camp JayCee."

The Andrew Brown Special Needs Scholarship will be awarded in January 2020 with help from the Brown family.

Queen Margaret Union also paid tribute after the tragic loss.

They posted on Facebook: "Andrew was involved in a serious road traffic incident in London in the early hours of Friday morning.

"Despite the valiant efforts of St. George's Major Trauma Centre who put him into intensive care, his injuries were too severe and on 5th November he passed away with family at his bedside.

"Those who knew Andrew will be aware that to know him was to love him.

"He was a vivacious and inspiring individual who had so much time for the people in his life, and gave so much to others through his work at QMU and beyond.

"His tragic loss will be felt deeply by all of us here.

"We would like to extend our heartfelt condolences to his family, and we will keep you aware of any plans that they or the QMU have to remember Andrew in due course.

"You will be sorely missed Andrew".
