Tributes pour in for Woodhall Spa teenager Tom


Tributes have started to arrive for a Woodhall Spa teenager who died after a collision between two cars last Sunday.

The 19-year-old has been named locally as Tom Hunt who is understood to be a former pupil at Banovallum School in Horncastle.

Sources say he studied A-levels at Lincoln College and also worked at the Abbey Lodge Inn in Woodhall Spa.

He was a keen Rugby Union player.

Tributes on social media include Laura Goff who said: “RIP Tom. I spoke to you a few times. You were such a lovely guy. My best wishes are with you and your family.”

Tom Fox said: “Rest in peace big lad. Hope you will take all the good memories with you and take it easy up there.”

Sam Stokes wrote: “Such terrible news. A genuine lad taken too soon from this cruel world.

“My college memories with you shall be remembered. Thoughts go out to his family and close friends. RIP big man.”

A police spokesman said emergency services were called to Main Road, Brothertoft near Boston, about 10.30am last Sunday where a black VW Lupo and a blue Renault Clio were in collision.

A teenager, the driver of the VW, was taken by air ambulance to Pilgrim Hosptal, Boston, where a short time later he died.

A couple in the Clio, believed to be from the Coningsby area, are being treated in Lincoln County Hospital for serious injuries.

Anyone who was in the area and saw the black VW and the blue Renault either before the collision or saw the actual collision is asked to contact police on 101 with the incident number 174 of August 10 or call the witness hotline on 01522 558855.

Police have not released any names and a post mortem and formal identification is due to take place tomorrow (Thursday).

It is understood specially trained officers are helping the family.
