“She worked as a teaching assistant in the special educational needs department of Longsands College, where she was well liked and respected.

“My daughter Jennifer worked as a school librarian until becoming a full-time mother to Oliver, now nearly three. She leaves behind her fiancé David, her son, and a family who love her and miss her terribly.”

Anyone with information regarding the collision, or any dash cam footage, is urged to contact police on 101 quoting incident 142 of June 7.
