Tributes to four who died in crash.

THE family of one of four friends killed in a car accident after a fishing trip yesterday said his death left 'a void that will never be filled'.

Tributes continued to be paid to the four men - Warren Harding, 27, his brother Scott, 25, and their friends Geraint Hill, 26, and 30-year-old Andrew Brooks.

Their bodies were discovered in a partly-submerged car in a water-filled ditch in Duffryn, near Newport.

In a statement released through Gwent Police, Mr Hill's family said: 'Well known in the Risca community, Geraint was an all-round sportsman who enjoyed watching as well as taking part.

'He was much loved by all his family and friends and will be sorely missed by his parents and younger sister.

'He leaves a void that will never be filled.'

The deaths have shocked the close-knit community in Risca, near Newport, where the four men lived.

The neighbour of Warren Harding paid tribute to the father-of-two.

Doreen Morgan lived next door to Mr Harding for seven years in Springfield Road, Risca.

Mrs Morgan, 82, said: 'He was a very nice lad, very sociable. He was the kind of neighbour who would help you out if you needed anything.

'He lived with his partner and their two young children - they must be devastated by this.

'Warren's parents have lost two children, it must be very hard for them.' A spokesman for Warren and Scott's family said: 'We have got nothing to say at this time.'A stream of villagers have visited St Margaret's Church in Risca to sign a book of condolences.

Among the visitors were Allan Maddocks and his wife Beryl, whose niece Jodie Sefton was Mr Brooks' partner. Mr Maddocks said: 'He was a quiet lad, a family man who loved his children and girlfriend.' Mrs Maddocks said the couple had two children, an 18-month-old boy called Taylor and a new-born girl, Macy
