A family has paid tribute to one of the victims of a crash in which three men died in Cardiff.

The collision between a car and a lorry happened on Sunday at about 04:00 BST on the A4232 Southern Way in the Llanedeyrn area of the city.

Robert Bambridge, 24, from Pontypool, has been described as a "free spirit" and a "kind hearted" son, brother and father by his family.

Details about the other men are not yet known.

"Robert lived for his daughter and was at his happiest when they were together walking in the mountains and playing in the swimming pool," said a family statement.

'Tragic'

"To say that Robert was much loved would not do him justice for the love that we feel for him.

"He was a son, brother but, most importantly, a father and it is tragic that he has been taken from us so soon."

South Wales Fire and Rescue Service said it had sent three crews to assist following the incident.

South Wales Police closed the road until Sunday afternoon to carry out an investigation.

Officers have appealed for anyone who witnessed the collision between a grey Ford Focus and heavy goods vehicle to come forward.
