TRIBUTES have been paid to a mum-of-five after she was found dead by her son in her home in Clydebank.

Lyndsey Kennedy was found by her eldest child Shaun, who had gone with his sister to visit their mum, at her home on Saturday, March 11.

Dad-of-one Shaun, also of Clydebank, attempted CPR until the ambulance arrived but sadly, nothing could be done to save his 36-year-old mum, who died from a blood clot in her lungs.

Since then, the 19-year-old has posted a tribute online for the 'one in a million mum and nana'.

He said: "Honestly never thought in a million years I’d be writing this but on March 11, I found my mum passed away. Honestly doesn't seem real at all.

"She was a fantastic mum of five and a nana and would do anything for her kids, could tell her anything that I was thinking or doing and she would never judge me at all.

"[She] stuck by me through the worst parts of my life, everyone who knew my mum knew she did not have a cap at what she said at all. There will genuinely never be another Lyndsey Kennedy, just hope I’m doing you proud. I love you so much."

Alongside dealing with the grief of losing the 'fantastic' woman who'd been there for him all his life, the teenager and his family are now facing a £2,500 bill to give her the send-off she deserves - and is appealing for help to the community before her funeral on Wednesday (April 12).

He added: "My family and I did not see this coming at all. My sister and myself have taken in my little brother and we are fighting to get my younger sister. We don't have the money to help with the funeral costs and it breaks me.

"We would be forever grateful to any amount [given], even a pound."
