A dad-of-one was killed in a car crash just days after he set his wedding date.

Liam Graham, 21, moved from Wakefield to Scotland five years ago.

He and his partner Karen, who have a one-year-old daughter, had set the date on Valentine’s Day and planned to marry in July 2016.

Mr Graham was killed when his Volkswagen Golf was involved in a collision with a Toyota Hilux.

He suffered serious injuries and was pronounced dead at the scene.

The accident happened at around 7am yesterday on Abernethy Road, between Abernethy and Newburgh in Scotland, where he lived.

His family paid tribute to a “much-loved man and adoring father”.

In a statement they said: “Liam was a deeply loved and devoted fiancé of Karen, very proud and adoring dad to Ashlyn, supportive stepdad to the boys and loving brother to Maia and Georgia.

“He also leaves another four sisters and extended family members in Yorkshire and his in-laws Lynne and David, of Craigrothie.

“His loss has left them all devastated and they ask that they be given the peace and understanding to grieve at this very difficult time.”

Anyone with information should contact Police Scotland on 101.
