The family of one of the people killed in a crash near Swindon over the weekend have paid tribure.

Sam Kay was one of four people killed when the Citreon Saxo they were travelling in, hit a black Mercedes head on, on the A420 at Shrivenham on Sunday night.

"There are no words to express the hurt we are feeling at the loss of our son, Sam. He was such a happy, loving person that lived life, not only to the fullest, but in his own way. His infectious smile and urge to give a hug is what made him so memorable.

"Sam’s love for travel led him to lots of unique places where he met so many unforgettable friends. He also had a great love for animals. Wherever Sam went, Felkica, his dog and best friend, followed by his side. After reading a countless amount of tributes, we see that Sam has touched so many lives in such a positive way.

"We are so very proud of the young man that he turned into. This tragedy has left a huge hole in our lives. Sam was taken from this world way too early and will be missed dearly, but he will forever be in our hearts. Goodbye, Darling. We love you. Mum, Dad, and Nicola xxx"
