Mum Abby Blanchard and stepdad Jamie released the following tribute to Zak in the days after the fatal crash.

They said: “Zak was our boy and he was everything we had hoped he would be.

“He was a fantastic brother to Ollie and his sisters Tyler and Livvy – he was in a really good place in his life.

“He was about to move in with his girlfriend Vicky so they could properly start their lives together and he really enjoyed his job – he was training to be an electrician and loved it.

“He wasn’t one to shy away from hard work, had a great sense of humour and was very much one of the lads.

“You will be truly missed Zak and our lives will never be the same without you.”
