Tributes day for St Neots crash victim

TRIBUTES have been paid to a “well-liked” St Neots man who was killed in a road crash near Godmanchester on Wednesday (June 13).

Scott Clark, 23, of Love’s Farm, died after his blue Vauxhall Corsa was involved in a collision with a tractor on Offord Road.

Rebecca Slight, 20, told The Hunts Post he was a close friend.

She said: “I was practically joined at the hip with him. He was a big cuddly bear and I loved him a lot as a friend. To be honest, it hasn’t sunk in yet but I’m sure it will.”

Rebecca is planning to raise money in his memory at the salon where she works.

She explained: “The money is for his family because I know Scott wouldn’t want them in any sort of trouble. I just want them to know how much I love the family.”

She will offer men’s haircuts for �10 with all proceeds going to Mr Clark’s family.
