The parents of a 24-year-old woman who died when her car caught fire after a road crash in Kent have said she was "perfection in every way".

Rebekah Alderson, from Littlestone, died after the accident involving three vehicles on the A2070 between Hamstreet and Ashford on 6 April.

Ms Alderson was a personal advisor at Connexions in Dover.

"She loved (to) have a success with one of the young people she so diligently tried to help," said her parents.

In a tribute paid to their daughter, they expressed their pride that she obtained a first class honours degree in history and social anthropology and said she was witty with a quirky sense of humour.

"Becky's passing will leave a huge hole, not only in the lives of her friends and family, but also in the lives of people who were yet to have the honour to meet her," said her parents, who did not wish to reveal their forenames.

Ms Alderson's Ford Ka collided with a BMW 5 Series and a Peugeot van. She died at the scene.

A 53-year-old Sittingbourne man, who was driving the BMW, was seriously injured.

The driver of the van, a 49-year-old man from the Ham Street area, received minor injuries.
