A young Kent man who died when his car hit a tree and overturned "never missed a beat of life", his family have said.

Danny Love, 20, of Rushmore Hill, Knockholt, was killed instantly in the accident in Otford Lane, Halstead, in the early hours of 5 August.

A male friend travelling as a passenger in the VW Golf escaped with minor injuries.

Mr Love's parents, Kenny and Mandy, and sister Joanna, said he will never be forgotten.

In a family statement, they said: "Danny was the sort of young man who was happy to be around people of all ages from the young children who adored him to the older generation.

First year exams

"He will be missed by many for his appetite for fun, never missing a beat of life, constantly meeting friends, all night every night."

Mr Love, a former pupil of Sutton Valence School near Maidstone, was a keen sportsman who had played for Sevenoaks Rugby Club.

After leaving school, he worked for a maintenance company as an apprentice heating engineer and had just passed his first year exams.

His funeral will take place at St Margaret's Church in Halstead at 1230 BST on 20 August.
