The families of two men who died in a car accident in Cornwall have been paying tribute to them.

Matt Reynolds, 26, and Liam Hancock, 20, from Tregadillett near Launceston, died after the car they were in left the A388 at Lezant and hit a tree.

They were pronounced dead at the scene in the early hours of 2 May. Three other men in the car are recovering from their injuries.

Frank Hancock said his son Liam had been taken in the "prime of his life".

"He was a keen and talented footballer with many friends," said Mr Hancock.

"No words can express how much he will be missed and I would ask that I be given time to grieve in peace for the massive loss of my son."

Charles and Margaret Reynolds said their son Matthew was "a very special person" and there was now a "big hole in their lives".

"Everyone will always remember his smiling face," they said.
