A woman who died when her car left a road in East Yorkshire on Sunday has been named by police.

Emily Morfitt, of Grovehill Road, Beverley, had celebrated her 19th birthday just nine days before her death.

She died when her blue Ford Ka came off the A1174 Hull Road between Beverley and Woodmansey, at about 04:00 BST.

The vehicle ended up in a nearby field and Humberside Police said Miss Morfitt had been pronounced dead at the scene.

Her father, John, said she had worked at Brown's Department Store in Beverley and described her as a "truly kind human being".
