A 23-year-old woman killed in a road crash in Herefordshire was "at the height of her happiness", her mother said.

Emma Louise Young, from Hereford, died when her Renault Clio came off the road at Trumpet Crossroads in Ledbury, and crashed into a tree last Thursday.

Her mother Angela Tyler said Emma had found "true love and happiness".

She had also found her true vocation looking after children and young adults with special needs, she added.

Anyone who saw the crash, which happened on the A438 just after 2200 BST on 30 September, has been asked to contact West Mercia Police.

'Gentle and loving'

Mrs Tyler said her daughter's death had left a void in the lives and hearts of her friends and family that would never be filled.

Her statement added: "My beautiful precious daughter was tragically taken from us at the height of her happiness.

"She was an unassuming, gentle, loving, caring individual who had always strived to do the right thing so that we would be proud of her.

"She had found true love and happiness and achieved her true vocation in life looking after children and young adults with special needs."

The crossroads was closed for six hours following the crash while accident investigators worked at the scene.
