The second of three women killed in a horror crash in South Yorkshire has been named today.

Barbara Twigg, aged 66, from Doncaster, died in a crash in Tickhill Road, Maltby, Rotherham, last week.

Two other women, including 58-year-old teaching assistant, Diana Hunt, from Hatfield, Doncaster, also died.

The third victim has not yet been named.

Mrs Twigg’s family today issued a statement.

“Barbara was a devoted and loving wife, mother and grandmother who was taken from us prematurely,” they said.

“Words cannot express how much she will be missed.

“Mum was a talented musician and teacher, and recently retired from running the Yamaha music school in Doncaster, where she also had many students. We urge anyone with information to come forward to South Yorkshire Police.”

Mrs Twigg was a passenger travelling in a red Toyota Aygo when it was involved in a collision with a black Ford Focus and a van close to the entrance with Maltby colliery on Thursday, November 26.

Witnesses should call South Yorkshire Police on 101.
