THERE have been further tributes from Worcester News readers to a city woman tragically killed in a car crash on the Pennines last weekend.

Rebecca Ward, a former Pershore High School student, died alongside her friend Philippa Bertram, 20, when the white Fiat they were travelling in collided with a Mini Cooper on the A628 Woodhead Pass on December 15.

Earlier this week the 22-year-old's family released a tribute saying: "Becky was a beautiful girl both inside and out who enjoyed life to the full.
