Pals of tragic Calum set for funeral tribute
FRIENDS of tragic Calum Burt will dress brightly for his funeral in Dunfermline on Saturday.
The "heartbroken" family of the top Cambridge University student has requested mourners wear "no black attire" for the service at Dunfermline Crematorium.
They also said that all his friends were welcome to attend.
Last week the Press broke the story that Calum (20) had died after being hit by a train near Culross on New Year's Day.
Tributes were made on social networking sites including Twitter and Facebook by shocked friends of the popular former Dollar Academy pupil.
He studied Natural Sciences at the prestigious university and was also a talented musician who played violin.
Last week Richard Partington, a senior tutor at Cambridge's Churchill College, said, "Calum was a wonderful person - happy, full of life, focused and immensely talented, with a great future ahead of him.
"He will be terribly missed and our sincerest sympathies go to his family and friends at this dreadful time."
He also said the college would be paying tribute with a memorial to the student.
It is still unknown exactly how Calum was killed but British Transport Police (BTP) said the freight train involved was the 0900 Inverkeithing to Moss End service that was heading to Longannet Power Station.
The investigation into the incident by British Transport Police continues, though they say there are no suspicious circumstances.
Calum's family said the incident had left them "heartbroken" and that he was "much loved by everyone who knew him".
