Heartfelt tributes have been paid to a "devoted wife" and "adoring mum" who was killed in a collision on the A120 near Harwich.

Mum-of-two Nicola Frost died after her Suzuki Ignis collided with a Mercedes Sprinter van near Ramsey at about 6.45am on Saturday, December 11.

The 40-year-old, who was from Harwich, was on her way to work when the accident happened.

In an emotional statement, her family described Nicola as "passionate" about her work and her family.

The statement said: "On the morning of Saturday, December 11, 2021, our darling Nicola was tragically taken from us in a collision on the A120 whilst on her way to work. 

“She was a devoted wife to Michael, and a loving, adoring mum to her beloved Richard and Rhianna. Nicola was always there whenever anyone needed her and was a loyal and supportive friend to many.  

"Nicola was passionate about her work as a healthcare assistant and to those that she lovingly cared for.  

"Home was where Nicola’s heart was and her children were her life. She was extremely proud of her children’s achievements and they continue to be her greatest legacy."
