British racing driver Sean Edwards, who was killed in a crash in Australia, was the son of former Formula One driver Guy, who helped pull Niki Lauda from his burning Ferrari at the 1976 German Grand Prix at the Nurburgring.
Sean also appeared in the recently-released film Rush, playing his father.
The governing body for UK motor sports has paid tribute to a "hugely promising" young driver from London killed in a crash. Sean Edwards was a passenger in a Porsche when it reportedly hit the barriers at Queensland Raceway in Australia, during a private test session.
Sean Edwards is the son of Guy Edwards, the British former Formula 1 driver. He wasborn in London but was living in Monaco. He was the 2013 Porsche supercup championship leader.
The response has been phenomenal. We couldn't have asked for a better welcome. One Perth operator who purchased a fleet of the 50 bright, white used TX4s has already had a stampede of drivers who want to be the first ones to buy a cab and partake in the trial.
We've had a lot of positive interest from ex-pats, both prospective customers and drivers; what has been especially gratifying are the offers from ex-pat London Taxi drivers who not only want to buy one, but have also offered their services to train our Australian drivers on everything from the service to vehicle operation.
Police, searching for a British man who went missing in bushland in Australia six weeks ago, say a body has been discovered. Gary Tweddle, 23, was attending a conference in the Blue Mountains, west of Sydney, when he disappeared after a work dinner.
The computer salesman, who had emigrated to Australia with his family, rang colleagues also staying at the Fairmont Resort in Leura in the early hours of July 17 to say he was lost in the bushland. He has not been heard from since then despite extensive search and rescue efforts.
Police say a body, believed to be that of Mr Tweddle, was found by an ambulance rescue helicopter during a training exercise near bushland in Leura.
Australian police rescue officers were unable to retrieve a body suspected to be missing Briton Gary Tweddle due to "extremely rough terrain" where it was found.
Joanne Elliott, a spokeswoman for Blue Mountains Local Area Command, said:
The ambulance rescue helicopter was on a training flight over the Blue Mountains when they saw what they believed to be a body.
The location couldn't be accessed on foot and the crew lost all light in the mountains so we're unable to get down to the ground. They will return first thing in the morning with Blue Mountains police.
The disappearance of Gary Tweddle, who is originally from Reading, sparked the biggest search ever conducted in the Blue Mountains with more than 1,000 officials and volunteers, according to local media reports. A body has now been found, though it's not yet confirmed whether it's Gary.
His father David flew out to Australia from his home in Berkshire to help with the search effort before he returned to the UK last month.A Facebook page titled "Have you seen Gary Tweddle?" has attracted more than 4,500 likes.
