Two cyclists killed in a crash were "great friends" who organised local events and helped raise cash for different charities.

Damien Natale and Andy Coles tragically died on Monday, June 1, after being hit by a car on the A40 Wycombe Road, between West Wycombe and Studley Green.

According to a tribute by their friend David Finch on village website - where the pair were from - the cyclists were returning home when they were sadly killed.

Mr Finch said their passion for cycling started in 2012 when they helped found the Haddenham Hillbillies, a group of all-ability cyclists who take on challenges to raise money for charity.

They helped raise hundreds of thousands of pounds for The Chilterns MS Centre and the Florence Nightingale Hospice, among many others.

Mr Finch wrote: "Whether they were raising money for charity, creating and putting on events for others or just ensuring their mates had experiences of a lifetime, they were truly without equal.

"Two awesome guys who leave us with fantastic memories plus a gaping hole in the heart of the Haddenham community."

The driver of the Volkswagen Golf R that was involved in the crash is helping police with their enquiries but officers still want to speak to anyone who has dash-cam footage or saw what happened.
