A man has paid an emotional tribute to his best friend who was killed in a road accident.

Jonathan Robert Harris, 22, from Stamford, was killed when the bronze Renault Megane coupe left the road on the A1175 Stamford to Spalding road, about a mile past the A15/B1525 roundabout in Market Deeping.

The accident happened on Saturday, July 30, and the car was discovered at 9.20pm.

His friend Jake Beasley, who had worked with Mr Harris at Herbs in a Bottle in Essendine, paid tribute to his friend, who would have turned 23 on Tuesday.

He said: “I have known John for three years and it felt like a lifetime friendship.

“I met John at work and we became very close friends from the start, we had a lot of good times together and memories were made.

“John was a very caring person, who always picked you up if you were down.

“He had a heart of gold and you could always have a laugh with him. I am going to miss that iconic laugh.

“I can honestly say I feel like I’ve lost a brother. Rest well my dear friend.”

Mr Beasley has set up a crowd funding website to help with funeral costs. Visit https://crowdfunding.justgiving.com/support-jonny-harris?utm_id=106&utm_term=rAWGgQ2B6

Police are not linking any other vehicles to the crash but are appealing for witnesses who might have seen Mr Harris’ Megane before the accident to call 101, quoting incident number 469 of July 30.
