The family of a grandad who died after a crash near Penzance say he was 'loved by everyone who knew him'.

Philip Slimmon lost his life days before Christmas, after two cars collided on the A30 at Buryas Bridge.

The 59 year old was taken to Treliske but doctors could not save him.

He leaves behind three children and six grand-children.

In a statement, relatives said: Philip was very popular and well liked, an inventor and entrepreneur before his time, he won the Welsh Business awards 1987 for 'Sports Absorba' which sold throughout the world. He moved to Cornwall in 1990, a very well known and much liked man in the Penzance area, known to his close friends and family as FUF he was loved by everyone who knew him.
 
Daughter Emma said: "I made him a money tree for Christmas, put 20 pound coins, one  on each branch, and was going to give it to him for Christmas. I now know that he was planning to come up to Swindon on a surprise visit on Christmas eve with my mum to bring our cards and presents but he never had the chance to deliver them.  I would like to donate the money tree to air ambulance who got him to Treliske but it was just too late."
