A close friend of a teenager killed in an accident involving a lorry in Weymouth has paid tribute to him.

14-year-old Rowan Lloyd from Portland died at the scene of the crash in Wyke Regis on the 6th June.

Lewis Burnell has been speaking to Wessex FM about him. He said: "He was such a happy person, I never had a bad time with him. He was just so nice and never did anything wrong."

Lewis is planning a trek with around 30 others from Portland Bill to West Bay on the 1st July.

They'll be raising funds for the RSPCA in memory of Rowan.
