The family of a woman who died in a collision in Wychbold pay tribute to her

Gail Lewis, 74, from Rubery, died when a car she was travelling in collided with another car at around 4pm on Bank Holiday Monday (April 22).

In a statement, her daughter Michelle said; "Mum devoted so much of her time to caring for other people; she was always putting everyone before herself and was just so very loving and selfless.

"We have been so moved by all the lovely messages that so many friends, neighbours and strangers have sent and, as a family, we would like to thank everyone for their love and support. However, we do ask that people who want to contact us directly please don't at this time while we come to terms with our loss. We would also like to thank all those in the emergency services who worked so hard to treat our mum on Monday, and for the care and respect they showed her and the whole family.

"We all love her so much and we will miss her terribly."

The collision happened when the car Mrs Lewis was travelling in, a silver Toyota Yaris, collided with another car on the A38 between Bromsgrove and Junction 5 of the M5.
