A memorial event to 19-year-old Bryce Donovan who tragically died in a car crash in Stevenage on December 14 will have to be cancelled if a suitable venue cannot be found.

Bryce died after his Suzuki Swift car hit a lamp post on Lytton Way in Stevenage.

The former Da Vinci Studio School and North Herts College pupil was a keen motor sports fan and a member of the Herts-Cruise motoring club.

Members of the club which runs meets in Hertfordshire organised a memorial set to take place at the Roaring Meg Retail Park in Stevenage on Saturday at 7.30pm.

However permission from the owners of the park had not been sought directly and they have recently said it cannot take place.
