Tributes have been paid to a Wiltshire teenager who was killed in a road accident in Berkshire.

Charlie Lamb, 18, was killed on Saturday when the car he was driving left the A4 near Hungerford.

Mr Lamb was from Grafton, near Pewsey, and a keen player for football team Pewsey Vale.

His friend Craig Simmons has set up a memorial page on Facebook and described him as outgoing and would always "looking out for his friends".

'Match cancelled'

"We only set up the Facebook group on Monday and it has already got more than 600 members," said Mr Simmons.

"I don't think anyone has a bad word to say about him - we want to make sure he gets the best send-off possible."

Pewsey Vale team members cancelled their football match against Corsham over the weekend in tribute to him.

"He was a massive Tottenham Hotspur fan. We'd really love to get some shirts printed with a picture of him on and the words 'Rest in peace Charlie' printed on them and see if we could get the Tottenham players to wear them," Mr Simmons added.

An 18-year-old male passenger who was also in the car remains in hospital in Oxford with serious injuries.
