The family of a man who died after a crash in Berkshire say he was in "the prime of his life".

Simon Large was seriously injured when he was hit by a car in Ascot High Street, early on 14 October.

The 24-year-old, from London, died in St George's Hospital, Tooting on Sunday. His family is "devastated".

One man has been charged with murder and another with perverting the course of justice. They are due to appear at Reading Crown Court on 14 January.

Two other men, aged 20 and 24, arrested in connection with the incident, have been released on bail until 10 December.

Mr Large, a keen footballer, worked with his father and brother at a lift firm.

In a statement, his family said: "Simon has been tragically taken from our family whilst in the prime of his life.

"We are all devastated by his death and urge anyone who was on Ascot High Street that night to contact police."

Thames Valley Police are appealing for anyone who was in the area at the time of the crash, outside Club 1, to speak to them.

They are also trying to trace the driver of a light-coloured Mercedes taxi.
