The pair had only been married for six months when Stephen Vaughan, 34, died in the collision in the village of Weston.

She said of him: “Steve was infectious; when he smiled, the whole room would smile. Myself, Steve's parents and family are very proud of the man he was, a true gentleman and we were so privileged to have been a part of his life. We are devastated that he was taken away from us so soon.

“We had only been married six months and I was honoured that he chose me to be his wife."
