A condolence book for people to write their memories and tributes to former King’s School student Euan Coulthard, has been placed at the Mayor’s Parlour.

Doug Hough who used to teach Euan chemistry at King’s School, has arranged for the book to be available at the Guildhall this week, for all those wishing to pay their respects.

He said: “We’ve heard from so many people who knew him. I taught Euan chemistry, and he was involved in the CCF. He was also a big part of helping run Knipfest for years. We wanted to give people the opportunity to express their thoughts at this sad time.”

It was confirmed this morning by Durham Police that a body found in the River Wear on Friday was that of Euan, aged 19, who had been studying law at the university’s St Mary’s College.

Euan was from Bottesford where his parents and sister live. The book of condolence will be given to the family.
