The family of a man who will never see his unborn son after being killed in a New Year's Eve car crash has paid tribute to the "wonderful husband and father".

Simon Lewis, 33, died when the Daihatsu Sirion he was driving collided with a blue Peugeot 307 in Lamby Way in Cardiff at around 5.30pm.

The driver of the Peugeot was taken to hospital and is being treated for injuries that are not life-threatening.

Paying tribute to Mr Lewis, from Trowbridge in Cardiff, his family said in a statement: "Simon was married to his wife Amanda of seven years and they had a daughter named Summer.

"He was a very popular man who lived for his family. He was a wonderful father and husband who was looking forward to the birth of his son.

"He will be greatly missed by his family and friends and is someone who will never be replaced."

South Wales Police are asking for anyone who saw the crash to contact them via 101, quoting reference 480293.
