An eleven-year-old boy has now died after a car crash in north Essex. The collision happened near Thaxted when the car he was a passenger in hit a tree on 3 October 2012.

It is thought the driver, a 19-year-old woman, had lost control of the vehicle. She is still in a stable condition at Addenbrooke's Hospital in Cambridge. An inquest into the boy's death is expected to open at the end of the week or at the start of next week.
