Tributes poured in for the 20 year old, who was originally from Gillingham, and studied at Rainham Mark Grammar School and Waterfront UTC.

A GoFundMe Page set up to raise £1,500 for his funeral has now surpassed £4,200.

The page reads: "On Monday 13th January, we tragically lost an important person who played a key role in everyone’s life.

"Brandon Knight sadly took his own life and parted his way at 4:09pm.

"He was someone who loved life; someone who put on a brave face which seemed as if there was never a bad time for him; and someone who found himself too busy making everyone happy that he sadly forgot to make himself happy.

"Brandon was the life of every party, the happiest, loveliest and funniest person down to earth who never failed to make everyone smile.

" An intelligent, smart, hard working young man who had the world going for him.

"Our hope is to provide financial support to the family regarding funeral costs at such this difficult time."

Brandon had been a friend of Kyle Yule who was murdered in a vicious gang attack two years ago in Gillingham, aged just 17.
