A funeral has been held for a second teenager who was killed in a crash near Devizes on New Year's Eve.

Jamie Walker, 17, was one of three friends from Chippenham who died when the car they were travelling in hit a tree in Rowde.

His father, Ian Walker, described him as a "loving son with a wicked sense of humour".

The funerals of all three teenagers are taking place at St Andrew's Church, in Chippenham, this week.

Jamie was studying sports exercise and science at the City of Bath College.

In a statement, Jamie's family praised his friends who have transformed a shelter in the local park where the the trio socialised with their friends into a "touching memorial" to the boys.

The funeral of Frankie Bowyer, 16, was the first to take place on Tuesday.

A funeral for George Conor Forester, 17, who died in hospital after the crash is yet to be held.

After the boys' deaths a fund was set up to raise money for Wiltshire's air ambulance which has so far reached almost £10,000.

The driver and another passenger survived the accident.
