A spokesperson for Stephen's family said "It's just a tragic accident is what we've been told and we're happy that is correct information. "It's not drugs, we don't believe, it's not suicide, it's not murder, it's not a fight."
The family are devastated and have asked me to take calls for the moment. They're trying to come to terms with it."
