Colleagues of a young chef who worked for Nathan Outlaw at the St Enodoc hotel in Rock in Cornwall have paid tribute to him after he was killed in a car accident.
The man, named locally as Joe Tyers from Leicestershire, died in an accident on the B3314 in the early hours of 30 September, according to the Cornish Guardian.
He was the only occupant of a silver VW Polo which crashed.
A statement issued on behalf of the St Enodoc Hotel said: "It is with deep sadness we heard of the death of one of our young chefs in a road traffic accident last week.
"Joe Tyers had only been with us a short time but had proved to be a quiet, sensible young man who took his career very seriously. He had already been marked as having a very promising career in the industry and will be missed by the team at Outlaw's.
"Our thoughts are with Joe's family at this very sad time."
