Police have named the young woman who tragically died in a crash at Gedney on Monday morning as 21-year-old Alexandra Hills.

In a statement just released, her family said: “Our daughter was tragically taken from us too soon.

“She was one in a million. We wish to express our thanks to those that helped and kindly request no further media contact so we can grieve with friends and family.”

Alexandra, from the Holbeach area, was involved in a single vehicle crash on the B1359 at Kingsgate during Monday morning’s awful fog.

Police are appealing for witnesses who saw her blue Ford KA at the time of the collision - or just before – to call them on 101 quoting incident 84 of October 31.

Alexandra was studying at Bishop Grosseteste University in Lincoln, where deputy vice chancellor Professor Jayne Mitchell said: “It was with great sadness we learned the news that Alexandra Hills, who was studying at BGU, passed away in a road accident.

“We are offering support to members of the university community who have been affected by this tragic event.

“Our thoughts are with Alexandra’s family at this very difficult time.”
