The family of a woman who was killed in a three-vehicle crash in County Durham have revealed she was pregnant.
Alison Raey, 39, from Stanley was a passenger on a motorcycle that collided with a milk tanker and a van on the A688 near Bowburn on Thursday evening. She was pronounced dead at the scene.
Her family have confirmed she was expecting their fourth child at the time of the incident, and say the couple had already decided to name their unborn baby 'Thomas'.
Mrs Raey's 51-year-old husband, David, and the tanker driver, were both arrested on suspicion of death by careless driving and released on bail.
