A skydiver who died on Saturday after when her main parachute failed to open has been described as "well loved" by her parents.
Pamela Gower, 49, suffered fatal injuries when she hit a parked car in a cul-de-sac in Shotton Colliery, County Durham.
She was an avid skydiver and was using a modified rig, approved by the British Parachute Association (BPA), as she had restricted growth.
Her parents Catherine and Len have issued a statement which described Pamela as "a great girl who was loved by her family so much and was a wonderful daughter and sister."
Durham Police said Ms Gower's reserve parachute did deploy, and the circumstances of her death are being investigated jointly by the police, the BPA and the Civil Aviation Authority.
