A six year-old girl who died in a car crash in Wiltshire last weekend has been named as Jess Marie Wright-Roberts.

The little girl was in a blue Land Rover Discovery driven by her step-mother when it came off the road and hit a hedge at Marston Maisey near Cricklade. No other vehicles were involved.

Her two brothers aged seven and 12 escaped serious injury. But their 26 year-old step-mother remains in a serious condition after being airlifted to Oxford's John Radcliffe Hospital. The family live at Kempsford, near Fairford.

Wiltshire Police say specially trained Family Liaison Officers from both Wiltshire and Warwickshire Police, where Jess’s mother lives, have been provided to offer support to the families. They're appealing for witnesses.
