The man who died has not yet been named, but is believed to have been from the Wells area.

One hand-written tribute taped to a bunch of flowers laid at the roadside says: 'We'll always remember you with the never-ending smile. Sleep tight Browneyes.'

Another note adds: 'Always the life of the party. You will be missed.'

Police are still investigating the cause of the crash, which involved three cars.
