About 50 bunches of flowers have been laid on the roadside in memory of a tragic Sheffield teen who died in a road crash.

Family and friends have left heart-wrenching tributes where 19-year-old Bradley Lester Byrne was involved in a road traffic collision on Friday.
Bradley was driving a black Seat Leon that was involved in a collision with a white Renault van near to the junction with Rotherham Road on the A57 in Beighton, at around 11.24am on Friday.
Bradley was taken to hospital but died of his injuries, police announced on Saturday.
Friends also left a McDonald’s meal and a can of Carling among the flowers in tribute to Bradley on the A57.
Graffiti has been sprayed across a wall near the collision site.
It said: “Rest in peace Bradley Byrne, Westside. We will all miss you. RIP bro.”
A 19-year-old woman who was a passenger in the same car as Bradley also sustained serious spinal injuries.
The driver of the Renault van, a 41-year-old man, was also seriously injured.
Police are now trying to trace the owner of a silver or grey coloured BMW, possibly a 3 or 5 series.
The car is reported to have been close to the scene at the time of the collision.
Friends and family members took to The Star’s Facebook page to leave their tributes to Bradley.
Shirley Down said: “A new star in the sky tonight, RIP Brad.”
Clare Williams Foster said: “This is terrible news, and we hear so much of things like this RIP young man, get well wishes to all others involved.”
A spokesman for South Yorkshire Police said: “Bradley’s family has asked that their privacy be respected at this difficult time.”
Witnesses have been asked to call 101 quoting incident number 371 of 7 August 2015.
