Mum Tribute To Daughter Killed In Car Crash

The mother of a teenager who died when the car she was driving plunged into a river has paid tribute to her "gorgeous girl''.

Amy Simpson, 18, was driving a car with four passengers inside when it left the road and entered the River Avich at Druimdarroch, Argyll and Bute, on Tuesday.

The four female passengers, aged between 17 and 19, escaped with no serious injuries.

In a statement issued by police, Ms Simpson's mother Angela said: "My gorgeous girl Amy wasn't just the perfect daughter, she was my best friend, my soulmate and my rock, and she made me so proud.

"One day I will make her as proud of me as I was of her. I am absolutely heartbroken and it's hard to find the words at this distressing time to express just how much I will miss her. Rest in peace Toots.''

Ms Simpson, of Cowdenbeath, Fife, died at the scene of the crash, which happened at 6.45pm near the village of Dalavich, Taynuilt.
