A pedestrian who died when two vehicles collided has been named as a 79-year-old grandmother from North Lincolnshire.

Helena Mary Horsley, known as Mary, of Kettlebridge Lane, East Halton, was struck on a footpath in East Halton on Tuesday night.

She was taken to Hull Royal Infirmary but later died.

Police said a 26-year-old local man, who was unhurt in the crash, was questioned by officers and bailed.

A 29-year-old driver of one of the cars suffered minor injuries and her female passenger, 20, suffered shock. Both are from Immingham.

Humberside Police said it was believed the 29-year-old driver had stopped her car at the side of the road to offer the pedestrian a lift home.

Mrs Horsley's family released a statement saying she was well-known in the area.

The family statement said: "We are extremely saddened by the tragic loss of our much loved mother and grandmother, Mary, who was very well known in the local area.

"She will be sadly missed, not only by her family but all who knew her."
