The wife of a man killed in a tragic lorry crash in Bath has released an emotional tribute to her husband.

Newlywed Stephen Vaughan, 34, an executive taxi driver from Wales, was picking up two businessmen to drive them home when the 32-tonne tipper truck hit his car. All three men were killed instantly.

Mr Vaughan is described as dedicated to his family and a well-respected businessman with an 'infectious' smile.

I was honoured that he chose me to be his wife ... 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.
