Tributes have been paid to a father who died after his car hit a tree in Bournville over the weekend.

The family of Stephen Mahay from Wolverhampton said his "energy and enthusiasm could light up any room."

The 27-year-old suffered serious injuries after his Seat Ibiza hit a tree in Linden Road at just before 3.50am on Sunday morning. He was pronounced dead soon after his arrival at hospital.

In a statement his family said: “Stephen was a much-loved son, brother, cousin, nephew, friend and father.

"His energy and enthusiasm could light up any room. He was always coming up with ideas and advice, many people were blessed with his presence and will miss him terribly.

"He was recently baptised and working out his plans for his life.

"We ask for privacy at this time and request no flowers instead if people would like to make charitable donations."

The Serious Collision Investigation Unit at West Midlands Police is continuing to appeal for witnesses.
