THE family of a 20-year-old woman who was killed in a road accident have paid tribute to her.

Laureen Hammond, from Sutton, near Woodbridge, died at the scene of a three-car collison on the B1083 at Bromeswell, near Sutton Hoo, at about 9.40pm last night.

In a statement, her family said: “On the 3rd of February 2011, Laureen Jayne Marie Hammond, or Lollie as she liked to be called by her friends, was sadly involved in a fatal road traffic collision while on her way to work.

“Lollie, who worked for Glebe house in Hollesley, was a dedicated carer for the elderly. She was a bright caring girl who lived for her work and her family. We, as a family, are going to miss her humour and sparkle for life.
