There is praise for the emergency crews who tried to save the charity cyclists who died in a crash in Cornwall.

Dad Andrew McMenigall and Toby Wallace were doing Land's End to John O'Groats when they collided with a lorry at Summercourt.

The families say the pair from Scotland were devoted - and had a remarkable zest for life.

Andrew and Toby’s families paid tribute to the emergency services and the people who have donated money: “Members of the public were there when the accident happened and did everything they could to help. The emergency services were on the scene within minutes and did a valiant job. 
 
"It must have been tremendously upsetting for the witnesses and the emergency services, and we want to thank them for everything they did.
 
"We have been touched by the generosity of people from around the world; people who had never met Andrew or Toby but have been making donations in their memory. Their kindness has been truly overwhelming. 
 
"We’d also like to thank the Pro-Am players from the Aberdeen Asset Management Scottish Open who donated their prize money, and the European Tour who matched the funds.”
 
Andrew and Toby were hoping to raise £10,000 for their two charities. 
 
To date, they have raised more than £50,000 and the donations continue to flow in. To make a donation go to:
