Tributes to Hethersett mother killed in car crash

The young daughters of a 'beautiful' and 'outgoing' Hethersett woman, who died in a car crash at the weekend, have paid a heartfelt tribute to their 'amazing' mother.

Sara Page, 29, of Park Close, was killed when the blue Volvo 850 she was driving was involved in a collision with a silver Peugeot 206 on the B1172 Norwich Road on Saturday evening.

The front seat passenger, Trevor Bunn, 30, of Hethersett, also died in the accident, while another male rear seat passenger, Ollie Wood, suffered serious injuries and remains in the Norfolk and Norwich University Hospital. The female driver of the Peugeot suffered slight injuries.

In a joint tribute, her children Tehya, 11, and Jazmine, four, said: 'Our mum was great. She made us happy when we were sad and we are sure she is making other people happy now up in heaven. Our nanny said that she was too special to be here and God wanted her up there. She was so beautiful, we can't believe she has gone.'

Her parents Michael and Susan Page, who live in Great Yarmouth, added: 'Our daughter Sara had a heart of solid gold. She was 22 carat. Such a beautiful girl inside and out. Her dad and mum just don't know how to carry on without her. We loved her with all our heart and soul.'

Miss Page, who is also survived by her brothers Kris and Shorn and sister Terri, grew-up in Alton, Hampshire, and moved to Great Yarmouth when she was 14. She had lived in Hethersett for about eight years - for the last eight months with her fiance Wayne Hammond, 35, who works at a dog kennels.

The couple became engaged on Valentine's Day and were hoping to get married next year.

'I loved her with all my heart. I'm never going to forget her. I'm going to do the best I can for the girls like I promised. She just made me the happiest man in the world,' said Mr Hammond.

He added: 'I class myself a very lucky man having her as a fiance. She was everything I wanted and something I thought I would never get. She was a bit of everything you want from lots of different people rolled into one coming at you in a package.'

Miss Page, who friends described as 'high spirited' and 'outgoing', used to be a regular at the King's Head pub in Hethersett and was a recognisable figure with her short blonde hair and facial piercings.

She loved motorbikes and cars, particularly Volvos, and also enjoyed animals, horror movies and music from bands such as Guns n Roses and Cypress Hill.

She had briefly worked as a porter at the Norfolk and Norwich University Hospital, but was mostly a full-time mum.

Close friend Emma Thornton, 25, said: 'The girls were her absolute life. She adored them with every ounce of her and she would have done anything for them.'

Fellow friend Kirsty McDonald added: 'We are totally devastated at the loss of someone so beautiful on the inside and out, so full of love for life and the best friend anyone could have asked for.'

Ollie Wood, who was a rear seat passenger of the Volvo, and is receiving treatment for his injuries at the Norfolk and Norwich University Hospital, posted on Facebook: 'I can't believe it. I feel so lucky to have got out with broken legs. I miss him already. Can't believe how quickly it happened.'
