The 49-year-old was rushed to the Queen Elizabeth University Hospital in Glasgow for treatment where he later died.

His loved ones have been left heartbroken by the tragedy and paid tribute to the dad who was described as "one in a million".

Gordon Lyon said: "We lost one of life’s good guys. There are no words that can describe the pain we are all feeling. Our thoughts and prayers are with all the Henderson and Mann family at this devastating time. Rest easy my friend."

David Mann said: "[I'm] honoured to call him my brother in law, [he] treated my sister like a princess. Forever in our hearts William."

John Mann added: "[I've] lost a brother in law who was like a brother to us. God bless you William, what a man."
