Tributes go out to Mansfield teenager killed in crash

Lewis was a popular student at West Notts College. He was a great lover of engines and was training to be a mechanic, as well as being a dedicated YouTube vlogger.

A party was held for his friends at his home, the Black Bull Pub in Mansfield Woodhouse, by mum Cheryl Broughton and step-dad Garry Broughton.

Step-dad Garry Broughton, 47, added: "Police have got a statement from the other guy and at the end of the day we don't know anything so it's a case of making sure anybody who does knows something comes forward.

"Somebody overtook Lewis in front of this other driver and we're begging this person to give a statement to police. "We're not looking to blame anybody.

"We've accepted this has happened and we just have to keep waiting until the police give us the full story."

The family also thank everyone for their support over the past two weeks. Garry added: "People have been coming up to us who we don't know and it really helps. We don't want people to stay away form the pub in this situation, so come in and see us and say hello, it really helps."

A funeral date has been set for February 21 and a procession of hundreds of bikes is expected to honour Lewis.
