Tributes paid after horse crash
The parents of an 18-year-old man killed in a collision involving three cars and a horse have paid tribute to their "well-loved" son.

Matthew James Jones, of Kenilworth, Warks, died in the accident on the A452 Kenilworth to Leamington Spa road on Friday.

Mr Jones, who was a passenger in a Rover car which overturned, was pronounced dead on arrival at hospital.

His mother, Caroline, described him as "an extraordinary young man".

'Very proud'

Mr Jones had been studying county management at Moreton Morrell College.

His mother said: "I am very proud of everything he has achieved. Matt was a true friend, loving son and brother.

"He will remain in our hearts forever within our memories."

His father Mark said his son had been a keen football fan who "loved the outside".

He added: "He was well-loved by so many and was a great support to other people."
