The 19-year-old was found critically injured on Magazine Street in Derry city centre in the early hours of Saturday morning

Mr Page was from Carrigans, just across the border in Co Donegal.

He had sustained serious head injuries and was taken to Altnagelvin hospital in Derry where he later died.

The teenager was an A level student at St Columb's College in Derry and it is understood he had gone out with friends and became separated from them.
