The family of a man who died when his car left the road and hit a tree have said he "touched the lives of everybody he met".

David King was killed in the crash on the B4000 near Ashbury, Oxfordshire, on 27 December.

The 32-year-old, from Lechlade, Gloucestershire, had just started work at SSE as a cable-layer.

In a statement his family paid tribute to the "wonderful father, son, brother and uncle".

They said: "He had a great passion for music, never without the stereo blaring; also for football and his beloved team Manchester United.

"He was always the life and soul of the party, enjoying nights out at the local and nights in with his family.

"Although his life was cut tragically short, he touched the lives of everybody he met.

"This is reflected within the outpouring of love and care we have received and a great testimony to what a fantastic, loving, kind-hearted person Dave always was.

"He was a credit to us all; our lives will never be the same."
