Tributes have been paid to a 40-year-old man who died in a crash in Bridgend.

It happened on Llangewydd Road in Bryntirion and involved a Ford KA belonging to Christopher Badman.

In a tribute, his family said he "died too young", adding: "His passing has left a huge chasm in many of our lives.

"He had many faults and usually paid the consequences. What has happened now is the ultimate consequence."
