(Updated 5:24am 4th July 2013)
Two cyclists killed in a crash on the A30 during a charity ride have been described and "dedicated and popular."
Andrew McMenigall and Toby Wallace were riding from Land's End to John O'Groats when it happened at Summercourt on Tuesday morning.
The pair were raising money for the Kirsten Scott Memorial Trust, which was set up in memory of one of their colleagues, who died of cancer at the age of 25.
Both men worked for Scottish company Aberdeen Asset Management.
Chief Executive Martin Gilbert said: "I knew both Andrew and Toby well. They were dedicated and popular members of our senior team. The fact that they died in such tragic circumstances while trying to help others less fortunate tells you much about their selflessness and humanity.
"This is a terrible time for the company. More importantly our thoughts are with the families of Andrew and Toby. We will be doing everything we can to support them."
Andrew was married and had two daughters and had graduated from Sandhurst as an Officer of the British Army. Toby was married and worked in the company's Philadelphia office.
In a statement on its website, the Kirsten Scott Memorial Trust said: "We learnt yesterday evening of the terrible news that Toby Wallace and Andrew McMenigall had both died in a cycling accident. They were cycling from Land's End to John O'Groats to raise funds for the Kirsten Scott Memorial Trust.
"Both Toby and Andrew had both been amazing supporters of the trust and their fund raising efforts have meant so much in helping to establish a trust in Kirsten's name to support young people under twenty six.
"We are all devastated to learn of this dreadful accident. Our thoughts and prayers are with Toby and Andrew’s families and friends at this sad time."
The pair had set out planning to raise £10,000. As news of the deaths spread a fundraising page set up to enable people to make donations saw that total smashed.
