Police had arrested Macauley’s brother Aaron, 20, on suspicion of dangerous driving.

Today, on the six month anniversary of the crash, police have confirmed that he will not be charged.

“We are happy that it is all over,” said mum Maxine.

“We have been going through hell for the last six months.

“At time’s Aaron got very depressed – I felt like I was going to lose another son.

“We are over the moon that it has come out that he wasn’t at fault. We can lay that one to rest.

“He lost his brother and lost his best friend and having that hanging over him was just horrendous.

She said the family has received ‘amazing’ support in the six months since the accident.

“Macauley will never be forgotten,” she said.

Aaron who had tried to save his brother and friend said: “It has been quite difficult to carry on with life especially trying to go back to work and trying not to think about it all the time.

“There were lots of rumours going around and it got to the point where I almost lost my job over it because it was getting to me.

“Now people will realise I wasn’t anything to do with what happened.”
