The family of a teenager who died in a collision in Weston Turville has paid tribute to 16 year old Ben Roberts, calling him the perfect friend, perfect brother and the perfect son.

The 16 year old, who used to go to John Colet School in Wendover was tragically killed in a road traffic accident on Saturday evening near Aylesbury Rugby Club.

He had just started a Public Services course at Aylesbury College.

Here's the statement from his family:

Ben was the perfect friend, perfect brother and the perfect son. Full of love, energy, happiness and life he loved nothing more than to be with his friends at the skate park, from morning to night. He loved being with his family; cooking, eating and watching bad films. No words can describe our loss; the void that has been left will never be filled. But his family and friends will never ever forget him – his smiles, sense of fun and infectious personality will remain cherished by all. Rest in peace Ben, we love you so so very much.

Ben's brother James is an Oxford United footballer and the club has issued the following statement:

The thoughts of everyone at Oxford United are with James Roberts and his family after the tragic death of his brother Ben at the weekend.

Ben, 16, died in a car accident in Weston Turville on Saturday night.

The club offers it sincerest condolences to the Roberts family and will hold a minute’s silence before the game at home to Wimbledon on Saturday.

Both Oxford United and Chester, where he is currently on loan, will allow James as much time as he feels he needs before he returns to playing football.

The two clubs would also ask all supporters and media to respect the Roberts family’s right to privacy at this very difficult time.
