A man has been charged over a head on crash on the M62 that killed a 20-year-old woman from Leeds.

20 year old Becky Caine from Gildersome died and three others were hurt when their car crashed into a Renault between junctions 21 and 22 near Milnrow.

The car was being driven the wrong way up the motorway in the early hours of Sunday Morning.

31-year-old Zimbabwean asylum seeker Wilfred Museka from Clayton is facing 4 charges including causing death by dangerous driving and lying about having a driving licence.

He has appeared before magistrates and will appear at the Crown court on October 8th.

Becky Caine leaves behind a twin brother, Jack, a younger sister, Emma, her mother, Susan and her partner Russell and father Tim and his wife Joanne. 

In a tribute from the family they said: 

"As you can imagine our lives are shattered and our hearts are broken into pieces. 

She was a beautiful girl with her whole life ahead of her. She was embarking on a modelling career and would be finishing her final year of her business degree at Leeds University. 

Rebecca was a bright light that attracted everything to her with her infectious laugh and her beaming smile. She saw the best in everyone and was loved by hundreds of friends. 

The worst part is the emptiness and the total waste of a beautiful life. She was only 20 when she died. 

She was our little girl now she is our little angel. Something somewhere has failed us."
