TRIBUTES have flooded in for two friends who were killed in a car accident.

Josh Powell, 18, and Daniel Hancock, 25, both of Grimethorpe, were thrown from the Peugeot 306 convertible.

Josh, a soldier in the Army's Light Dragoons died at the scene, while Daniel died in Barnsley Hospital on Wednesday morning.

Army pals described Josh, of Park Avenue, as a 'true family man', 'one of a kind' and 'a promising young soldier'.

Daniel, of Elizabeth Street, known as Danny, was described by a neighbour as a 'popular lad' from a well-known family.

Police said the vehicle left Engine Lane on a slight left-hand bend, hitting a lamp post before continuing along the footpath, through a garden and into the front of a house.
