Ross Mackay, 27, is believed to have suffered an epileptic fit while riding a moped in Pattaya and collided with a pick-up truck, sustaining fatal injuries.

He collided with a pick-up truck and suffered fatal injuries.

He was working in call center in the city by day, and by night he worked at clubs and bars to develop his musical career.

His devastated mother Lyn Mackay believes Ross, who was planning a holiday in Cambodia with his father before coming back to Swansea, may have been so excited it might have led to a seizure which caused him to crash at traffic lights in Pattaya.

His mother hoped that he would one day follow in her footsteps as a professional musician.

She added: “Ross was a good guitarist and played on stage with me in my musicals.

“I’m lucky I’ve got memories like that.”

A funeral is now being arranged for Ross, who died on July 21, in Swansea, with relatives and friends coming from all over the world.

Swansea Girls starred writer Lyn, as well as Menna Trussler, who featured in both the BBC-produced soap Pobol Y Cwm on S4C, and the BBC comedy Little Britain.
