THE family of a Watton-at-Stone man who died in a head-on crash have paid tribute to him, writes Simon Wesson.

Ian Allison, of Lammas Road, died in Benington after his Rover was in collision with a Vauxhall Astra at 6pm on May 15.

The 34-year-old leaves his partner Lesley and three children from a former relationship, nine-year-old Chloe, seven-year-old Jack and four-year-old Joel.

Mother Christine, 65, said: "Ian was a fun loving man who loved spending time with his family and his children.

"He was well liked and will be missed by us all. He is irreplaceable."

His father Bruce, 64, said: "Ian was a fine engineer and mechanic. He was very clever with his hands at school and was very good at artistic modelling."

The toolmaker, pictured, also leaves his sister Helen, 35, and 27-year-old brother Richard.

The family added: "We would like to thank all of our friends for the cards they have sent filled with love and good wishes."

His funeral will be at 3.30pm today (Wednesday) at St Andrews and St Mary Church, High Street, Watton-at-Stone, then at Harwood Park Crematorium. Donations for Great Ormond Street Hospital can be made via Powell Funeral Service, Nelson Court, Watton Road, Ware, SG12 0AA.
