A man, 24, was arrested on suspicion of causing death by dangerous driving.

In a tribute on behalf of family, his girlfriend said: "Jay was much loved by family and friends with his brilliant sense of humour."

She added: "He always brought a smile to people's faces. He will be so sadly missed by all who really knew him. Truly one in a million."

The other passenger in the Corsa, a 22-year-old man, remains in hospital but his condition is not believed to be life-threatening.

The driver of the Corsa is receiving treatment for a broken ankle.
