The family of a bus driver who died following an incident in Moray have said their "world has been shattered".
Keith Rollinson, 58, died at Dr Gray's Hospital following an alleged assault at Elgin bus station at around 10.40pm last Friday.
In a statement released through Police Scotland, a family member said: "On Friday 2 February the kindest, [most] dedicated and loving husband and father was taken from us.
"Our world has been shattered. I cannot see us ever getting over our loss of our rock.
"We would like to ask for privacy at this time to deal with the loss without intrusion."
A 15-year-old boy was arrested and charged in connection with the incident and appeared in court on Monday accused of murder.
The teenager, who cannot be named due to legal reasons, made no plea to the charge and was remanded in custody.
He is due back in the dock next week.
