A second man has died following a crash near Londonthorpe on Thursday night.

The 19-year-old, who has not yet been named, was a passenger in a black Toyota Yaris which crashed off High Road. Emergency services were called to the scene at 11.35pm. The passenger was taken to Queen’s Medical Centre in Nottingham, where he later died.

The driver of the car, 20-year-old Shaun Durham, from Grantham, was also taken to the hospital following the collision and died shortly after.

Shaun’s family said in a statement: “As a family we are absolutely devastated by the loss of our son and brother Shaun. Shaun was a very kind, caring and fun young man who was loved by so many people.

“He had a bright and fulfilling future ahead which sadly now will never be. A huge piece of our hearts was taken as suddenly as our boy and we will forever miss him. As a family we ask for some privacy to attempt to accept and grieve as a family. Our thoughts and prayers now go out to his very dear friend and his family.”

Police are asking for any witnesses who saw the Yaris being driven before the incident, or who saw the collision itself, to call 101, quoting incident number 504 of June 8.
