A driver who was killed when his car came off a motorway in Kent has been named as James Nicholas.

Mr Nicholas, 37, from London, died at the scene, on the London-bound M26 at Kemsing on 23 August.

He was the sole occupant of a Citroen C2 which left the road and crashed into a bank just before 17:00 BST, Kent Police said.

His family said he was a keen rugby player in West Sussex and Somerset, as well as a "massive film fan".

In a statement, they said: "James is remembered fondly by everyone he met. He was kind and big hearted and able to put anyone he met at ease."

No other vehicles are believed to have been involved. Officers are appealing for witnesses.
