“TOO young and gone too soon” were among the poignant tributes to Cameron Phillips.

The youngster, of Sullivan Road, Tilbury, had only just begun a course as an apprentice welder after leaving Hassenbrook School, in Stanford-le-Hope, and had high hopes for a career in engineering.

On Tuesday, devastated parents Tony and Denise said in a statement: “Cameron was a dearly loved son, brother to Nathan and a good friend to everybod.

“Cameron was interested in fishing and liked mechanics. All our family will miss Cameron greatly.”

A sea of floral tributes bearing emotional messages and cards have been left at the foot of a tree in Brennan Road, close to where the accident occurred.

Friends also put messages on Facebook, describing Cameron’s kind nature.

One pal said “Cameron was such a good boy. He loved and cared for everyone”, while another read “RIP Cameron, you didn’t deserve to go like that as young as you were”.
