A man who was killed in a car crash on the M25 has been pictured and named for the first time by police.

Cameron Robst was found injured after a crash between junction 24 and 23 near Potters Bar at 11pm on September 16.

The 23-year-old, who was the driver of a red Ford Focus, was pronounced dead shortly after.

His family, who are being supported by officers, have since paid tribute to Cameron.

They said: “Our whole family is absolutely devastated at the loss of Cameron.

“He was a wonderful, caring and fun 23-year-old who enjoyed life to the full, with a smile and personality that could light up a room.

“The amount of friends that have come to pay their respects, especially to his mum Natalie, is testament to the person that he was.

“Our family will never be the same without him.”

PC Kirk Caldicutt, from the Serious Collision Investigation Unit, said: “Our thoughts remain with Cameron’s family at this very difficult and sad time.

“We are continuing to investigate the circumstances of the collision and are appealing for anyone who was in the area at the time and may have witnessed the collision or the events leading up to it to please come forward.

“Additionally, if you have a dash cam fitted, please review your footage as you may have captured vital evidence that could help us progress our enquiries.”
