17-year-olds Rhodri Miller, Corey Price and Alesha O'Connor died along with 68-year-old Margaret Challis in a collision on Friday night.

Rhodri was a bright talented 17 year old who had so much to live for. He was studying for his A levels at Bro Morgannwg School. He was a very popular boy inside and outside of school.

"He loved his football, was a season ticket holder for Cardiff City Football Club, and loved going to the gym. He will be very sadly missed by family and friends, all who knew him."

Alesha was a kind loving child, a much loved baby sister and our beautiful princess. She was much loved by all her extended family.

"She was the perfect daughter and friend and has left a massive void in our family. Alesha was beautiful, intelligent and artistic and had her whole life ahead of her.

"We as a family would like to pass on our sympathy to the other families who have lost loved ones."
