A ST LEONARDS man who died after a crash near Wimborne has been remembered for being an "incredible loving person and a fantastic father".

Daniel Williams died after a two vehilce collision on Blandford Road near Kingston Lacy on August 18.

Dorset Police was called to the incident at 8pm, which involved a white BMW 114i and a white Skoda Fabia.

Mr Williams, 40, was the driver of the Skoda and was pronounced dead at the scene.

The driver of the BMW – a woman aged in her 50s from Warminster – was also pronounced dead at the scene.

A tribute from Mr Williams family said: “Daniel will be sadly missed by all of his family and friends. Daniel was the most incredible loving person and a fantastic father to his young children who he loved dearly.

“Daniel was a loving man with a kind heart and the funniest sense of humour, he was always happy with an infectious smile. He did all he could to make others happy and would always put himself out to help others and nothing was too much trouble.

“Daniel has left a huge hole in everyone’s lives and will be sorely missed.”

Sergeant Nikki Burt, of the traffic unit, added: “Our thoughts are with the families of both of those who very sadly died in this collision and they are being supported by officers.
