Two peo­ple died on a black day on the roads on Bank Hol­i­day Mon­day.

Both fa­tal in­ci­dents oc­curred within a few min­utes of each other with the emer­gency ser­vices called to both North­bor­ough and Ailsworth shortly af­ter 1.30pm.

Po­lice have not yet iden­ti­fied the per­son who died in Ailsworth, but the ca­su­alty of the North­bor­ough crash has been named as 24-yearold Scott Ch­ester of Roth­bart Way, Hamp­ton Har­gate.

Mr Ch­ester pre­vi­ously worked as a chef at The Rose and Crown in Thor­ney, and trib­utes have been paid to him on the Peter­bor­ough Tele­graph’s Face­book page, with his sis­ter Jade-Krystyna Tum­ber-Brown com­ment­ing: “Such a lovely lad that has left us too soon! Never have I felt so much pain! Just want my brother back!”

Oth­ers were also ful­some in their praise of Mr Ch­ester.

Eloise Veale said: “Scott you are go­ing to be missed by many, you were an amaz­ing young man who loved life so much.

“You were al­ways will­ing to help ev­ery­one and even brighten up the day with your smile.

“Fly high Scott you will al­ways be in our thoughts. Xx.”

Shirley Mar­shall said: “What an amaz­ing young man with such a big heart, will be sadly missed. RIP Scott x.”

Jemma Ben­nett said: “So tragic, Scott was such a great lad, just re­mem­ber­ing all the times we had at school may you RIP an­gel x.”

The emer­gency ser­vices were first called to Peakirk Road in North­bor­ough on Mon­day at about 1.45pm to a col­li­sion in­volv­ing a grey Re­nault Kan­goo Ven­ture and a black Vauxhall As­tra.

Mr Ch­ester, the driver of the Re­nault Kan­goo Ven­ture, suf­fered fa­tal in­juries and died at the scene.

The driver of the Vauxhall As­tra, a 28-year-old woman, and her two young pas­sen­gers, both chil­dren aged un­der 10, suf­fered se­ri­ous in­juries and were taken to Peter­bor­ough City Hospi­tal.

The road was closed be­tween Church Street and Pek­ing Road while re­cov­ery took place and was re­opened at ap­prox­i­mately 7pm.
