The family of a soldier killed in a crash on the A1 at South Witham on Saturday have paid tribute to an “amazing man loved by many”.
Stuart Young, 24, of Glenrothes, Fife in Scotland was killed in a two car collision on the A1 southbound at about 5.20pm on Saturday.
Stuart’s family said: “Stuart’s death has left a hole in our hearts.
“Stuart was our hero, he was an amazing young man loved by many. Stuart’s first love was being a soldier, he loved his family and friends and will be sadly missed by all who knew him.”
Mr Young was driving a blue Ford Focus when the car collided with a blue Volkswagen Passat driven by a 30-year-old man from Kirton near Boston.
