A man who died following a two vehicle collision on the A16 at East Keal last week has been named locally as Nathan James Ardron after friends rallied around to help pay for the funeral costs.

Mr Ardron, who was known as Beak to his friends, sadly died and four other people were seriously injured following the two-vehicle collision which took place just after 10pm on Thursday.

Friends and family have taken to the social media platform Facebook to publish tributes to Mr Ardron.

Dad Darron Ardron, from Skegness, has posted on his Facebook wall: “Fly high little man , granny and grandad are waiting for you my sweet forever in our hearts sweetheart. Love you son forever xxxxxxxxxxxx mum and dad, Brendon and Ashley xxxxxxxxxxxxx”

He thanked people for their kind words.

A crowdfunding appeal has also been launched by Casey Pearson on gofundme which has so far raised £340 towards the cost of his funeral.

Posting on Facebook, Aaron Green wrote: “Nathan James Ardron, A kind hearted, spirited and well loved member of the Boston-Skegness community tragically lost his life in a car collision early hours this morning.

“Nathan didn’t deserve this, does anyone? So just to make this time a little bit more bearable his friends have decided to set up this crowdfunding account on behalf of his family to help pay for funeral costs or anything that may be needed to ease their pain.
