Family tributes to crash friends

Ahlee Jackson and Callum Matheson
The pair had been friends since primary school

The parents of two teenagers killed in a car crash in Inverness said they were strong friends who supported each other through bad times.

Callum Matheson and Ahlee Jackson, both 17, were in a Skoda Fabia VRS which crashed as it turned from Island Bank Road into Drummond Crescent.

It is believed the car hit a lamppost and a wall before going into a garden where it hit a tree, on Sunday morning.

In a statement, their families said their loss was indescribable.

The pair had been friends since starting school at Cauldeen Primary and remained so when they moved on to Inverness Royal Academy.

'Bad times'

Mr Matheson had played for Inverness Highland League club Clachnacuddin FC's youth team, while Miss Jackson was a care worker.

The statement read: "They have been close friends for years, supporting each other through the bad times and with each other for the good."

"They were always very sociable, being the life and soul of the party.

"We cannot describe the loss we feel, but would like to thank everyone for their support."
