A 58-year-old man who died following a crash in Caerphilly county on Wednesday has been named by police.

Paul Daley, of Cefn Fforest, died after the Citroen C3 he was travelling in collided with a VW Passat on the A467, near Newbridge, at 10:00 GMT.

In a tribute, his family said: "He would light up a room with his sense of humour and wicked smile."

The 22-year-old driver of the Passat was arrested on suspicion of causing death by dangerous driving and bailed.

The woman driver of the Citroen remains in a stable condition in hospital while another passenger has been released after receiving treatment.
