An inquest into the deaths of two young sisters killed in a car crash will be held today.

Tamzin Portor, 10, and Jessica, seven, were killed in the crash on December 27, 2012.

Their father's partner Marie Easter, 44, was driving the family for a post-Christmas cinema trip when she swerved off the A47 at Walsoken, Norfolk.

She admitted two charges of causing death by careless driving at Norwich Crown Court and was given a 15-month jail term, suspended for two years.

Norfolk Police found that Jessica may not have been wearing a seatbelt and the rear tyres of the Ford Focus had dangerously low treads and uneven pressure, which would have made it hard to control.

The girls' father, Allan Portor, suffered broken ribs in the crash. His son, Liam, 12, suffered cuts and bruises.

Easter was also injured in the crash.

The inquest is due to take place in King's Lynn.
