THE family of a 24-year-old man who was killed in a crash at the weekend have described him as "kind hearted".

South Wales Police confirmed that Robert Bambridge, of Pontypool, died in a crash on the A4232.

Mr Bambridge's family paid tribute to him, saying: “Our Robert, the most kind hearted, free spirit you could ever meet.

"Robert lived for his daughter and was at his happiest when they were together walking in the mountains and playing in the swimming pool.

"To say that Robert was much loved would not do him justice for the love that we feel for him, he was a son, brother but most importantly a father and it is tragic that he has been taken from us so soon.”

Two other men died were also killed in the crash.

All three were travelling in the same vehicle – a grey Ford Focus – at the time.

The driver of a lorry involved in the collision was not seriously injured.

The incident happened at about 4am on Saturday, August 5 on Southern Way (A4232), Cardiff, about 200 yards north of Newport Road roundabout.

South Wales Police is continuing to appeal for any witnesses to contact them. Officers would like to speak to anybody who saw the collision, anybody who stopped to provide assistance who has not yet spoken to police, and anyone who may have seen the vehicles in the moments leading up to the collision.
