A father-of-two killed in a road crash in Rhondda Cynon Taf has been described as a "wonderful husband and dad".

Lee Williams, 41, from Aberaman, near Aberdare, was one of two men who died in a two-vehicle crash on the A4059 in nearby Cwmbach last Thursday.

The other dead man, 38, was in a separate car, while a four-year-old boy passenger was taken to hospital but his injuries are not life threatening.

The 40-year-old driver of Mr Williams's car was airlifted to hospital.

His injuries are not said to be life threatening.

Mr Williams was in a Nissan Skyline on the Aberdare bypass when the collision with a Citroen Xsara happened shortly after 15:00 BST last Thursday, said South Wales Police.

His wife Sian and sons Harri and Ben said in a statement: "Lee was a wonderful husband, dad, son, son-in-law and friend.

"Everybody who knew him cannot believe he's now gone. He was loved by everyone and will never be forgotten."

Mr Williams was born in Aberdare and attended Aberdare Boys Comprehensive School.

He was a production manager at the Highland Spring bottling plant and was a keen golfer and footballer.

Police are appealing for people who saw a white Nissan Skyline two-door coupe shortly before the collision.

It was travelling from Aberdare town centre along the A4059 bypass road towards the Asda supermarket roundabout.

South Wales Police asked people with information to contact the roads policing unit on 101 or Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
