Tributes laid for young sisters killed in crash

Floral tributes have been laid by the road where two young sisters died in a car crash on the Norfolk-Cambridgeshire border. The girls, who were seven and 10, were killed after the car they were travelling in crashed off the A47 at Walsoken near Wisbech on Thursday evening.

The girls have been named locally as Tamzin and Jessica Portor from Sutton Bridge.

They were both taken to the Queen Elizabeth hospital in King's Lynn but died from their injuries.

Their 12-year-old brother suffered minor injuries, as did their 38-year-old father, who was the front seat passenger and the driver, a 43-year-old woman who is not the mother of the children.

They were treated in hospital and later released.

Norfolk Police said the children involved in the collision on the A47 were from Sutton Bridge in Lincolnshire while the two adults lived in West Norfolk.
