The former headteacher of Carley Cockburn, who died in a car crash along with her family in Grimsby, has paid tribute to a 'talented' young girl.
Superintendent Tracy Bradley of Humberside Police has told the Grimsby Telegraph:
What we know so far is that a collision has occurred between a Nissan Primera and a light goods vehicle. There were five occupants in the Nissan Primera, and two of the occupants were taken to the Diana, Princess of Wales Hospital where they were declared deceased.
There were three other occupants of the vehicle who were certified deceased at the scene.

At this moment in time we are conducting an investigation to try to find out what the cause of the incident was, and we have family liaison officers that are working with family and relatives of the deceased.
We would like to appeal to any witnesses that either saw any of the vehicles prior to the collision or saw the incident occurring.

A coroner has called for "root and branch" changes to gun licensing at the conclusion of an inquest into a taxi driver who shot dead three members of his family before killing himself.
Andrew Tweddle said that with the current "flawed" system it was "fortuitous" there had not been more incidents like the one in Horden, near Peterlee, County Durham, on New Year's Day 2012.
Michael Atherton, 42, killed his partner, Susan McGoldrick, 47, her sister, Alison Turnbull, 44, and Ms Turnbull's daughter, Tanya, 24, before turning the gun on himself.
Mr Tweddle, sitting in Crook, reached a verdict that the women were unlawfully killed and that Atherton killed himself.
The inquest heard that Atherton, despite a history of domestic abuse and threats to self-harm, legally owned six weapons, including three shotguns.
The inquest also heard that there was no formal training for police officers involved in granting firearms licences.
Thieves who stole Chinese artefacts worth £2 million, but hid them so well they couldn't find them again, have been jailed.
36-year-old Lee Wildman and 33-year-old Adrian Stanton put a lot of thought into planning the theft at Durham University's Oriental Museum. They chose the night before Good Friday, used cloned number plates and chiselled a hole through a brick wall to get in and out quickly.
But the men hid the stolen items on wasteland and when Lee Wildman went back, he couldn't find them. The Judge at Durham Crown Court said they had shown "crass ineptitude".
