Afam­ily has been left dev­as­tated af­ter two young sis­ters died when the car they were trav­el­ling in crashed into a ditch on a Wis­bech road. Jes­sica Por­tor ( seven) and her 10- year- old sis­ter Tamzin, from LongSut­ton, died­from­head­in­juries when­theFordFo­cus­they were trav­el­ling in crashed on the A47 at Wis­bech on De­cem­ber27. The­girls’ fa­ther, 12- yearold­brotheran­dan­oth­er­woman suf­fered mi­nor in­juries in the crash.

Both girls’ par­ents have paid trib­ute to their ‘ an­gels,’ and thanked friends and fam­ily for their sup­port fol­low­ing the tragedy.

Paying trib­ute to Tamzin, her par­ents said: ““Tamzin was a com­i­cal lit­tle girl. She was al­ways happy and saw the funny side of things. She was a good stu­dent and helped out at school. She loved help­ing peo­ple. Tamzin loved to sing with her friends and would write her own lyrics. She loved to so­cialise and was a fun per­son to be around. Her lat­est craze was Moshi Mon­sters and Doc­tor Who.”

Paying trib­ute to Jes­sica, they said: “Jes­sica was a lively girl who loved to dance and eat choco­late. She loved to wear make- up and go­ing out. Jes­sica was also very com­i­cal and had bag­sof en­ergy. She­would­bring alive any room she was in. Both Jes­sica and Tamzin loved mu­sic, singing and their pet dogs.”

The girls’ par­ents added: “Th­eloss of our lit­tle an­gels can never be re­placed. The whole fam­ily and friends are dev­as­tated. The fam­ily would like to thank all the well- wish­ers who have passed on their con­do­lences.”

An in­quest into the deaths was opened on De­cem­ber 31, and ad­journed un­til a fu­ture date.

Po­lice are still ap­peal­ing for in­for­ma­tion about the mo­ments lead­ing up to the crash, which hap­pened at about 6.40pm near the junc­tion with Broad End Road

Chief I nspec­tor Chris Spinks, head of road polic­ing in Nor­folk and Suf­folk, ex­tended his sym­pa­thies to the girl’s fam­ily and friends.

He­said: “Fa­tal col­li­sions are tragic in any­cir­cum­stances­but given the fact that two young lives have been lost at this time of year seems to make it that much worse.

“Spe­cially trained fam­ily li­ai­son of­fi­cers are sup­port­ing the be­reaved rel­a­tives and col­li­sion in­ves­ti­ga­tion of­fi­cers are piec­ing to­gether theeventsthat led to the crash.”

Any­one with in­for­ma­tion should con­tact Nor­folk po­lice on 101.
