The family of a 47-year-old who died after his car collided with an ambulance have said his death "leaves a massive hole in our hearts".

Jeff Rawle, from Treherbert, Rhondda Cynon Taf, died at the scene of the crash on Rhigos Mountain Road at about 19:00 GMT on Thursday.

Mr Rawle's family said they were "completely devastated" by his death.

The 52-year-old ambulance driver was taken to the Royal Glamorgan Hospital, where he was treated for minor injuries, but has since been discharged.

"His sudden death has left a massive hole in our hearts and lives and we as a family are completely devastated as we try and make sense of what has happened," they said.

"He was loved and liked by so many. He will be missed."
