[T]he family of a woman who died following a road traffic collision have paid tribute to her life.
Audrey Tunstall, aged 79, of Cape Road, Seaton, died following injuries suffered in a collision with a Volkswagen Passat on the A596 at Dunmail Park shopping centre on Saturday evening.
Audrey was with her friend at the time who was also injured in the collision. She is currently at the Royal Victoria Infirmary in Newcastle in a critical condition.

“This tragedy has left behind a heartbroken loving son, two sisters and their respective families.
“Audrey was close to the friend she was with at the time of the collision and as Audrey’s family our thoughts are with her and her family.
