The friends had been travelling in a black Ford Ka when the crash happened at about 11.50pm.

Kyle’s family described him as a “very cheeky chappie” and said: “He always had a wonderful smile on his face no matter what! He was an extremely loving person, especially to all his family and friends. He was very outgoing and loved in return by all.”

They said he loved banger racing and often won trophies.

“Lorries played a big part in Kyle’s life with truck shows and polish,” they said.

“Which later evolved into his passion for cars and the modified car scene, music and partying which he tried his best not to miss! Kyle will be sadly missed and never forgotten.”

Davina O’Neill, Dominic’s mother, described her son as a “beautiful, much-loved person”.
