THE family of a young man killed when the car he was in plunged down a quarry say he “loved life".

Paul Sanders, 22, from Alkerden Lane, Swanscombe, near Dartford, died at the scene of the incident in London Road, Swanscombe, on Tuesday, January 29.

Paying tribute, his father Dennis Sanders, said: “There are so many things we miss about Paul. His wicked sense of humour, his laughter, the way he used to sing in the bath.

"Motorbikes were his love, but he was also very proud of his car and enjoyed spending time with his closest friends mixing music and d-jing.

“He loved his job valeting cars and had worked there since last summer. His dream though was to work with animals. He doted on his dog Lady for 11 years. They were inseparable. The house is very quiet without him.”

Paul lived at home with his father, mother Janet, older sister Marie, 24, and younger brother John, who is 18.
