The family of a woman who has died from her injuries after a collision involving three cars in Sussex last month, have paid tribute to her.
Fifty-nine-year-old Valerie Austen from Horndean died at Southampton General Hospital on Monday 10th April. She was injured in a crash on the A272 at Rogate in West Sussex back in March.
Her daughter, Lisa Walsh, said her mother has been 'the cornerstone of our very close family". She added that the family have been buoyed by the support they have received from friends and the people who knew her mother.
The family, had moved to Hampshire from West London about two-and-a-half years ago. Valerie Austen leaves behind her daughter Lisa and Lisa's husband Adam, and their three children; a son Lee, his wife Kirstie and their two children; and Mick, her husband of 41 years.
