Crash victims named locally

A teenage girl and a 20-year-old man who died when their car left a road in Kent and crashed into a tree have been named locally.

Amy Clark, 17, and Rob Wiltshire were discovered inside the Ford Fiesta by a passing motorist near Charing Crematorium in Kent just after 10pm on Saturday.

Miss Clark, from the Ashford area, and Mr Wiltshire, from the Maidstone area, who was in the passenger seat, were pronounced dead at the scene.

Their next of kin have been informed, although the pair, who were believed to have been partners, have not been formally identified by Kent Police.

Tributes have been paid on social media websites, including Twitter. One wrote: "RIP Amy Clark and Rob Wiltshire. Far too young to die. God only takes the best."

The Maidstone-bound carriageway was closed for around four hours while officers investigated the collision and recovered the car.
