‘Our little angels’ who loved singing - devastated family release pictures of sisters
The parents of two sisters tragically killed in a collision on the A47 near Wisbech have paid tribute to their ‘comical’ and ‘much-loved’ daughters.
Ten-year-old Tamzin Portor and her seven-year-old sister Jessica, both of Sutton Bridge, died as a result of their injuries after the crash at Walsoken on Thursday evening.
Paying tribute to Tamzin they said: “Tamzin was a comical little girl. She was always happy and saw the funny side of things. She was a good student and helped out at school. She loved helping people. Tamzin loved to sing with her friends and would write her own lyrics. She loved to socialise and was a fun person to be around. Her latest craze was Moshi Monsters and Doctor Who.”
Paying tribute to Jessica, they said: “Jessica was a lively girl who loved to dance and eat chocolate. She loved to wear make-up and going out. Jessica was also very comical and had bags of energy. She would bring alive any room she was in. Both Jessica and Tamzin loved music, singing and their pet dogs.”
The parents added: “The loss of our little angels can never be replaced. The whole family and friends are devastated. The family would like to thank all the well-wishers who have passed on their condolences.”
Their 12-year-old brother Liam suffered minor injuries in the accident, along with their 38-year-old father Allan Portor, who was the front seat passenger. The 43-year-old female driver of the car also suffered minor injuries.
At an inquest opening earlier today Norfolk coroner William Armstrong said the car was travelling towards Wisbech when it overturned at around 6.40pm.
The girls died at the Queen Elizabeth Hospital in King’s Lynn from multiple injuries.
