Faye’s mother was in the Vauxhall Mervia car with her daughter and suffered serious injuries.

She was taken to Royal Preston Hospital, while a man in the car also suffered serious injuries.

Just hours earlier, Faye and her family had been enjoying a carefree day at the seaside.

After her death, Faye’s family were inundated with messages of support from people in Blackpool, Leyland and across Liverpool.
