Damn..... :thumbsup:

I hope everything turns out good, and while like everybody else, I hope he's OK, I just hope he's found either way. I can't think of anything more distressing for his family.

My thought are with his family and friends.

Guys, its all over.

Oli has been found, sat in his car, on the bed of the River Thames. From the sounds of things he must have hit his head and gone out cold, or Im sure he would have been able to escape.

This tragedy is even more heartfelt when you hear that Oli's poor mum lost her father just 3 weeks ago. I cannot even begin to imagine how Carol is feeling, I could never wish this on even the worst of people, let alone Oli Lewis and his amazing family. Never a more kind and genuine family I have met.

Oli has been one of my best friends over the past year, and has been the most amazing person to have around, we have shared so much together in the last year, and so much more was planned.

By all accounts I would imagine that Oli would want to go at the wheel of his car, it meant the entire world to him, and was a true credit to his amazing skills, I am simply gutted that his Mini was never finished, as he genuinely lived for that car.

I will do my best to see that the mini is finished.


I'll make sure all your comments get passed on to Olis family, it will be comforting for them to know how truly loved their son was.

A true friend, taken away from us exactly 4 weeks before his 21st birthday.

RIP Oli Lewis. I will miss you terribly

My thoughts and my condolences are really with his family.
I really am speechless.

For Oli's sake please make sure his Mini goes to a good home.

Can you let us know if the funeral will be open to friends and family or just family.. i'd like to attend the funeral. Oli helped me with a few ideas with the conversion. He even offered to come down and help me put it together! He really had a heart of gold and a genuine nice chap.

Rest in peace dude!

Im so sorry to read this. Oli was a good lad, and was always on TMF expressing himself.

I think a fitting tribute would be to get the mini finished. And im sure i speak on everyone on TMF when i say, we will all help to get it finished.

RIP Oli

A shocking story with an horrific outcome. I always hate hearing about a young talented life being taken away.
My thoughts go out to his family at this terrible time.

Has there been any answer of the cause of the accident?
