Two children were left with “life-changing” injuries after a fatal crash in the Cotswolds.

The children, a ten-year-old girl and a 12-year-old boy, suffered the injuries during the crash which claimed the lives of Harry Purcell, 17, Matilda 'Tilly' Seccombe, 16, and Frank Wormald, 16.

They had been travelling with their stepmother, who also suffered serious injuries, in a Fiat 500 when they collided with a Fiat Fiesta which the teenagers had been in.

The crash happened on the B4035 Campden Road near Portobello Crossroads at around 4.10pm on Friday, April 21.

As of Tuesday, May 2, the two children remain at John Radcliffe Hospital in Oxford, having undergone a series of operations.

Their family would like to thank the medical staff at the hospital for their hard work.

They have also expressed gratitude and appreciation to the emergency service teams and members of the public who helped in the aftermath of the crash.

Finally, they wish to extend their condolences to the friends and families of Harry, Tilly and Frank.
