He said his team and their families were saddened and shocked by his death.
“Steven was a dear colleague and friend who had made a tremendous impression in Hungary since his arrival last October with his personal warmth and his sheer professionalism, not least his excellent Hungarian,” he said.
“As our fellow Scot Robert Burns, whose works we had recently recited together, wrote ‘Few hearts like his, with virtue warm’d, Few heads with knowledge so inform’d.’ We will miss him so much.”
Sir Simon McDonald, permanent under-secretary at the FCO, said it was “simply shattering news”
“He was just starting out on what was sure to be an outstanding career and his friends around the world and across the FCO will miss him sorely,” he said.
