The family of 19-year-old Siân Chambers, who died after a collision on the A46 just before Christmas, have paid an emotional tribute to her.

As previously reported, Siân and Alex Ross were both in a Ford Mondeo in Lincoln on the morning of Saturday, December 22 when they were involved in a collision.

A 26-year-old local man was arrested on suspicion of causing death by dangerous driving, providing a positive breath test and leaving the scene of a collision.

He was believed to be the driver of a white Citroen C3 which collided with the car Siân and Alex were in between the Carholme and Skellingthorpe roundabouts

The arrested man was later released from custody under investigation and has not yet been charged.

Siân Chambers’ family has now released the following tribute: “Siân was a much loved daughter, sister and friend. We are totally devastated by her passing and are struggling to, in any way, come to terms with the loss.

“Siân was working as an engraver and, as a talented double bass player, was continuing to make music with local ensembles.

“She loved animals and was having a gap year before taking up Animal Science at university.

“As a family, we would like to take this opportunity to thank the people who stopped and offered assistance to Siân and Alex and the emergency services who attended.

“We would appreciate privacy at this time, and wish to allow the police to carry out a full investigation in order to give us the answers that we need.”
