TRIBUTES have been paid to a "kind and considerate" teenager who died after being struck by a lorry on a major Hampshire road.

Oliver Washington, 19, died at the scene of the incident, on the northbound carriageway near Kings Worthy.

The incident took place around 4.45am on November 19.

Following his death, Mr Washingston's parents, Gytha and John, have paid tribute to their son, who had recently been a volunteer for Cancer Research UK.

They said: “We are devastated by the loss of our only son Oliver.

"He was kind, considerate and we are so proud of the young man he had become. He loved travelling and was a keen skier.

"He was really enjoying his university course and looking forward to a career in Event Management.

“Last summer he began volunteering for Cancer Research UK as part of his Gold Duke of Edinburgh award which he had recently received.

"He loved helping out at Race for Life events and was planning to help again next year.

"We have decided that all donations and money raise in Oliver’s memory will go to CRUK.”

Police say investigations into the exact circumstances of the collision are ongoing.
