Police have named a young dad who died in a crash on the A39 near Falmouth.

Dominic Christophers twenty-one and from Lanlivery

Almost two thousand people have joined a Facebook group paying tribute to him.

It is after a van and car collided on the Treluswell roundabout at around 9am on Monday morning.

Police officers along with fire and ambulance crews were scrambled to the two-vehicle smash.

A white Mercedes Sprinter van and a silver Ford Focus were involved in the collision.

The car passenger suffered serious injuries.

The two occupants of the van were relatively unharmed.

The stretch of road was reopened at 9.40pm on Monday night.

As well as carrying out an investigation into the cause of the crash teams also had to clear up a large amount of spilled diesel.

On Twitter Aidan Killen wrote: "Awful news. Rip Dom Christophers, always had a smile on his face when I saw him. Thoughts are with his friends and family."

Jamie Webb added: "Terrible news! Life is unfair! RIP Dom Christophers."

Olivia wrote: "What a cruel world we live in, R.I.P Dom Christophers - a truly lovely guy."

Police are appealing for witnesses who saw what happened or either of the vehicles.

Please call 101 quoting 168 of the 28th October.
