By Branwen Jones

The family of an 18-year-old man have paid tribute to a "loving son and dear friend" following a crash in Shirenewton over the weekend. Dafydd Hughes from Abertysswg, Caerphilly died at the scene of an incident involving a Peugeot 5008 and a Ford Focus in the Monmouthshire village on Sunday, May 8.

A 29-year-old man, 54-year-old man and a 51-year-old woman were taken to hospital for treatment after the crash on Usk Road, which took place at around 1.30pm on Sunday. The man and a woman in their fifties have been released. The 29-year-old man remains in hospital receiving treatment.

A fundraising page has been set up in memory of Dafydd, which you can find out more about here. Dafydd's family has released a tribute: "We as a family are truly heartbroken. Dafydd had just turned eighteen, he had his whole life ahead of him.

"He was a very kind and loving boy who worshipped his family. He was a good friend to many people and had that little something about him. If you only met him for a minute, he would touch a place in your heart.

"Dafydd made the most of his life and was always smiling. He loved fishing and going to dog shows. He was a proper boy. Dafydd was a loving son, grandson, brother, nephew and dear friend and will be greatly missed."

Gwent Police are still appealing for information, and have asked anyone who was in the area at the time, or who has dashcam or CCTV footage to get in touch. You can contact the force on 101, quoting 2200152615, or you can send them a private message on social media.
