The family of a teenage driver killed in a crash on the M4 have said they feel "as though our hearts have been ripped out".

Corey Robinson, 18, from Neath, died at the scene of the crash at Llandarcy on Saturday. Two passengers were injured.

Mr Robinson, a former pupil of Dwr-y-Felin Comprehensive, was a construction engineer and a keen sportsman.

Police have appealed for any witnesses to the collision, which happened at 05.15 BST, to come forward.

In a statement, his family said: "Corey was a wonderful son, boyfriend, brother, grandson, nephew and cousin.

"We are all devastated and feel as though our hearts have been ripped out.

"We appreciate the kind words and messages that have inundated his Facebook page.

"Nobody ever had a bad word to say about our Corey."

Mr Robinson's girlfriend Hollis John called him irreplaceable.

She said: "He truly was my world and I can't begin to explain how much I'm going to miss him.

"Nothing will ever take away the pain and devastation this has brought on me. I'll never forget him and his cheeky smile."
