The family of an 80-year-old grandmother killed in a car crash in Essex have paid tribute to her.

Jean Childs was driving on the A120 at Colchester Road when she was in collision with another car on 27 January. She died at the scene.

Her family say she "enjoyed life to the full" and "loved spending time with her grandsons".

"Mum was a very young and beautiful 80-year-old who enjoyed life to the full.

"She loved spending time with her grandsons, playing cards games, needle work, knitting and anything that was creative.

"She will be remembered for her beehive blonde hair style and for a being a dinner lady at Chapel Hill School for over 20 years."
