The family of a 17-year-old who died when two cars crashed on Wirral have paid tribute to a "remarkable and inspirational son".

Jonathan Brown was a passenger in a Ford Fiesta which was in collision with a Nissan Micra on Telegraph Road, Heswall, on 6 October.

Two women, aged 82 and 84, who were in the Micra, have been described as critically ill at Arrowe Park Hospital.

Jonathan's parents said: "His caring nature touched everyone who met him."

They added: "The tragic events that unfolded last Thursday evening have devastated our family and the void that remains through Jonathan's untimely passing can only be described as unbearable.

"Harry, his younger brother, will miss the special relationship that they both shared. Jonathan was a role model and a caring brother always. We are so proud and honoured to be his parents."

They said he was an "inspirational son" with a "wicked sense of humour".

"He had an exciting adult life ahead of him which had only just begun. Sadly this was cruelly taken from him at such an early age," his parents added.

Police have asked anyone who witnessed the crash to contact them.
