More than a 1,000 people came to pay their final respects to crash victim Hassan Hussain, 20, who died after his Peugeot 107 was involved in a accident with a Vauxhall Astra.

He was rushed to Bradford Royal Infirmary but was later declared dead.

Hasan was a very bright boy, he worked two jobs at such a young age at BBQ Express and as an apprentice legal worker for Alison Law Solicitors in Bradford.

Many turned up to Hasan’s funeral at Madni Jamia Mosque in Thrornbury road including family and friends.

His father Adil Hussain struggled to hold back his tears and his uncle said Hasan was the best child you could ask for.

He said: “We are devastated and absolutely shattered, he was the diamond in our lives.

“He was his parents’ only son and had three sisters who all loved him to bits, he treated them like his babies.

“He worked two jobs to support himself, at the law firm and at BBQ Express in Toller Lane, and he was coming from there when it happened.

“He rang his mum and said he would be bringing some food home and to keep his sisters up, he had some of his favourite ice cream with him too.

“He wanted to work because he didn’t want to be a burden on his parents, he wanted to support his own education and prove to them he could do it.

“He was a beautiful boy, a fantastic child, the best you could ask for. He was a quiet and smiley guy.

“He had a future ahead of him and a career in law, it was something he always wanted to do.”

“I feel sorry for the person who smashed into him. I feel sorry because he will have to live with that for the rest of his life.

“His sisters will never have a brother again, his mother never have a son. I hope other youngsters will learn from this and drive safely. They not only put their own lives in danger but others as well, and it is not just one life destroyed, it is a whole family’s life. Youngsters, please learn from this, life is too short. People need to learn to love each other again.”

Mohammed Shafiq Councillor of Bradford Moor attended the funeral at the mosque.

He added: “My condolences go to the victim and his family, my heart goes out to them.

“This is a tragic incident that has taken another young life on our roads in Bradford, and I urge people to take care on our roads.

“Hasan is a big loss for his family and the whole community, he had aspirations and a career ahead of him.

“This was one of the largest funerals I have attended in Bradford.”
