A family have paid tribute to a 22-year-old who died in a car crash on the A38 on September 16.

Tom Demaine, from Saltash, was described as "the most generous, kind, intelligent and funny young man" by his family.

Tom was a very special person to many more than just his family. Over his very short 22 years he touched so many people - young and old.

He was much loved here and remembered for his wicked sense of humour, including the way he played the cymbals – with great verve and rhythm.

Tom studied Biomedical Sciences at Plymouth University and was a keen sailor. He sadly died after his Ford Focus crashed off the road and into trees on the A38 at Chudleigh shortly after 12.15am.


Children's charity shop vandalised for seventh time

Volunteers at a Cornwall charity shop for young people with cancer are "disgusted" after vandals targeted it twice in one week, causing thousands of pounds of damage.

The latest damage to the roof is the seventh time the CLIC Sargent charity shop in Saltash has been targeted in the last year-and-a-half. It means the charity will have to spend thousands of pounds on repairs which would otherwise go towards the cost of accommodation for parents while their children are away in hospital.

This comes only two weeks after thieves stole donations left in the shop's doorway in broad daylight, before driving off in a white van. That was the latest in a long string of thefts.

Shaun Hutchings from CLIC Sargent told us how frustrated volunteers were.
