A 30-year-old woman who was killed in a horror crash in Thorner has been named by her friends and family.

Victoria 'Tori' Wilson and an unnamed friend, also 30, died when the black Renault Clio the women were travelling in collided with a tree in the early hours of October 29.

Although police believe the crash happened at around 1am, the alarm was not raised until 7.30am and both were pronounced dead at the scene.

Tori, from Moortown, was one of three sisters and is survived by her young son and daughter and her siblings Laura and Rebecca.

According to her Facebook page, she had studied beauty at college.

Tori's friend Hannah Oakes has set up a Gofundme page which has so far raised over £3,400 towards her funeral costs.

Hannah said: "It’s hard to find the words to even say right now. Thank you for always forcing selfies, no matter how many times I told you to pack it in - so grateful to have those memories to treasure now. Thank you for always being the kindest and most caring girl, the one who lifted everybody up and never ever put anybody down! You have always been like an older sister to me and I’m so grateful to have had the pleasure to have grown up with you and shared so many good times. Spread your wings now beautiful girl."

The Clio was last seen travelling away from Leeds on Wike Ridge Road at 12.50am.
