THE SISTER of a Wisbech man who was killed in a car crash in the early hours of Monday has today paid tribute to her “brilliant brother”.

Carl Parsons, 25, of Walsoken, and Daniel King, 22, of King’s Lynn both died when the Mercedes van in which they were travelling crashed in Berkshire.

The van was involved in a collision with an Audi car on the A34, close to the Chieveley exit, at around 7.30am.

Both men were pronounced dead at the scene. The driver of the Audi suffered minor injuries but did not require hospital treatment.

Carl leaves behind two children, a three year-old son and an eight-month old daughter, and his fianc�e, Louise Thompson.

His sister, Joanne Parsons said: “He was a brilliant brother and a brilliant father - he was working to look after his kids when it happened.

“He would do anything for anyone and he was always smiling. He had a fianc�e that he loved very much. He will be missed but never forgotten. He will live on through his children.”
