The family of a man who died when his car overturned in Hampshire have paid tribute to him.

Timothy Othniel Arshad, 19, from Blackfield, lost control of his blue Daewoo Matiz while driving south on Lepe Road, near Langley.

Emergency services found him inside the car early on Saturday. He was declared dead at the scene.

His parents Malik and Mia Arshad said he was "a very dear, loving, young man, a son, brother, grandson and uncle".

They added: "He was doing so very well at Brockenhurst College, had a bright future, aspired to join the Royal Engineers.

'Our grief'

"He loved sailing the sea with Venturers Search and Rescue at Lepe Beach.

"Family and friends are devastated by his death. He will be sorely missed by all his family and those who love him.

"Words can't express our grief. He is engraved on our hearts forever and now in the loving arms of Jesus."

Police have started an investigation and have appealed for witnesses to come forward.

Acting sergeant Dave Dyer said: "Our initial inquiries are focused on how this car appears to have gone out of control."

The road remained closed for seven hours while police examined the crash.
