Tributes are being paid to a young Cornish driver killed in a crash.

Christopher Treglown died when his car hit a hedge and flipped over at St Minver.

The 23 year old's family say he was talented, ambitious and renowned for his friendliness.

"Christopher, son of John and Julia Treglown, was part of a caring and loving family who fully supported him in all his endeavours. Christopher’s talents and ambitions were  inspired by his family. Sporting prowess from his father’s side and music from his mother’s. The composer Goff Richards was his uncle. Christopher spent happy years at St Minver C.P. School where he shone at sport. A natural sportsman excelling at football, athletics and surfing. His exceptional football skills were recognised by Wadebridge Town Football Club and he represented the county at school boy level. Christopher completed his education at Truro College with a Diploma in Public Services. In 2007 Christopher had the honour to be selected for the Rotary Youth Leadership Award (RYLA).

"Since then he has been a valued employee in the leisure department at Hustyns. Here he made many friends because of his ability to interact with young and old alike. He was renowned for his friendliness.
 
"Music was Christopher’s passion from Elvis to musical theatre and latterly exploring opera. From an early age his relationship with his grandmother Joyce fostered his love of singing. His grandmother learnt to dread the words “One more Nan!” when she was playing and Christopher singing. From small beginnings with the Perceval Christopher went on to perform in the Port Isaac Music Festival. Audiences were touched and moved by his raw talent. In the last few months Christopher had been delighted to have his talent recognised by the renowned international soprano Maria Jagusz. Through her encouragement he had auditioned and gained the part of Sweeney Todd to be performed in July for the Loughborough Youth Opera Festival. He was also delighted to have an opportunity to perform in a Mozart concert in Cheltenham. During his short time in Gloucestershire Christopher’s enthusiasm and talent endeared him to the company, just as it did everywhere else. Wonderful memories friends and families have, is Christopher’s singing on the beach, in the bathroom and on the stage.
 
"John and Julia are overwhelmed by the comforting cards and tributes. The love and strength from the community has brought them so much comfort and strength. They wish to express heartfelt thanks to everyone".
