EMOTIONAL letters paying tribute to a young man who was killed last month have been laid at a memorial.

A football scarf, flowers and other items started to be placed on a fence in front of Beechwood Park on Chepstow Road, after a pedestrian was killed in a late-night collision.

That person was later named as Jordan Routley, who was 21-years-old.

One of the many letters read: "So very sorry for your loss.

"Nothing can fix a broken heart but time is a great healer."

While another read: "We cannot believe you are gone.

"You will always be loved.

"Rest in peace, Jordan."
