A devastated young man last night paid tribute to his "beautiful friends" killed in the M25 horror crash.

Jonathan Chandler, Matthew O'Donnell, Andrew Graney and Christopher Janaway all died when the recovery truck they were travelling in collided with a lorry on the motorway in Surrey.

The quartet, all from Brighton, had been heading home from the stag party of James Forrer when they lost their lives.

The groom-to-be said he and his fiancée were so devastated by what had happened they were considering putting off what should have been the happiest day of their lives.

Surrey Police yesterday revealed the names of four of the men but said they could not yet release that of the fifth Brighton man to be killed or that of the sixth victim - the 46-year-old driver of the recovery vehicle from Rugby.

Mr Chandler, 23, was a promising musician with Brighton band The Mojo Fins and Mr Graney, 29, was a guitarist with city band Wonky Beak.

Both Mr Janaway, 28, and Mr O'Donnell, 30, were doctors in the city.

All four men died during the early hours of Monday morning in a devastating collision on the M25 as they made their way back to Brighton from Leicestershire.

The friends were part of a group of 13 men aged between 25 and 30 who were travelling home to Sussex after the stag weekend in the East Midlands when their bus broke down on the M1.

The groom and six of the party were given a lift for the rest of the journey back to Brighton while their friends clambered into the cab of a recovery truck which picked up their minibus and headed south.

They were just 30 miles from home when the truck was involved in a collision with a lorry between junctions 8 and 9, Reigate and Leatherhead, at 2.15am on Monday.

Only one passenger in the recovery truck survived the collision and he was last night in a stable condition after being transferred from East Surrey Hospital to the Queen Victoria Hospital in East Grinstead.
