A Requiem Mass for mum Ann Marie Carruthers, 37, of Moss Bay Road, Workington, will be held in the Church of Our Lady and St Michael, Banklands, on Monday at 11am.

The service will be followed by cremation at Distington Hall.

A member of the public called police after discovering a silver Peugeot upside down, half a mile off the A69 at Haydon Bridge at 5.50am on Saturday.

The sole occupant, Ms Carruthers, was pronounced dead at the scene.

A funeral notice for Ms Carruthers says she was the mum of A.J, daughter of Kathleen and sister of David, Lorna and Emma.

The family has requested that donations, if desired, should be given to the Cardiothoracic Intensive Care Unit at the Freeman Hospital in Newcastle c/o John Sandelands Funeral Directors on 01900 602753.

Northumbria Police issued an appeal for information about the crash. They are particularly asking for anyone driving in the area between 11pm on Friday and 5.50am on Saturday to contact officers as they may have vital information.

Anyone with any information should call 101 and ask for Northumbria Police.
