THE family of a young woman who died following a collision at Flimby on Sunday, May 15, have released a moving tribute to her life.

Bethanie Clark, 31, of Lowca, was a pedestrian on the A596 who died at 12:08am on Sunday following a single vehicle collision involving a Nissan Qashqai.

A 30-year-old woman from West Cumbria was later arrested on suspicion of two counts of causing death by dangerous driving and has since been bailed.

Bethanie's family have issued the following tribute: "Rossiter W Raymond wrote: Life is eternal, Love is immortal, Death is only a horizon.

"My daughter Bethanie struggled with her mental health and addiction for years, yet was one in a million, her heart was immense, and she was the most caring person anyone could meet. She put everyone and everything before herself.

"She had a great love for animals and her passion was her dogs (Pippa, Bobs and Chloe) but this love did not compare to the love she had for son Harry, he was her world, and she will live on in him.

"To my darling Bessie, tragically taken from us too soon. We love you; we will miss you immensely.
