Tributes have been paid to a father-of-seven who was killed when his car crashed on an M25 interchange in Kent.

Andy Roberts, 44, was described as a "much-loved son, brother, uncle and nephew" who will be "missed greatly".

He died at the scene of the crash on the slip road of the A20 coastbound at Swanley interchange in the early hours of 6 June.

A passenger in his Mercedes coupe was also treated at a London hospital following the incident.

In a statement, his family said Mr Roberts worked as a mechanic, was very hardworking and "would help anyone and happily go out of his way".

"Andy loved his family and was a true family man. He has been described by his eldest son Ben as his idol.

"He had a love of films and had a large collection. He also had a passion for World War Two planes, especially German aircraft.

"He was a larger than life character and all who met him, loved him. He had an infectious smile that would bring joy to all."
