The family of Mansfield teen Lewis Crouch are mourning after the 16-year-old died in a moped crash, and say they have taken huge comfort from watching his catalogue of YouTube videos.

A keen motorcyclist and video editor, Lewis, 16, from Mansfield Woodhouse was a prolific vlogger on the free movie-sharing site.

The enterprising teen had built his own channel to showcase his work, by making all kinds of videos from vlogs, to filming bike rides on his Go-Pro and cutting together footage from computer games.

But he was also known for his sense of humour, which shines through in his videos.

So here's a compilation of clips to immortalise the 'special teenager' in his medium of choice, courtesy of his parents.

His mum Cheryl Broughton, 45, who runs the Black Bull pub in Mansfield Woodhouse, said: "He was training to be a mechanic but really we always thought he'd end up doing this, making his videos and it was his dream to be a YouTube star.

And through his YouTube channel the family have found huge solace as they watch his back-catalogue (which can be found here).

Jason added: "You would think he was spending time in his room playing games, but he would be making these videos."
