THE family of a young mother who was killed when her car left the road and collided with trees said they believed she would live on as a guardian angel to her 16-week-old son

Rachel Jackson had been heading home after dropping off her boyfriend at his house when she lost control of her Peugeot 306 on the A1 near St Neots.

The 25-year-old from Dukes Drive, Ramsey Forty Foot, who was described as a wonderful mum and a free spirit, was alone in the car at the time of crash.

In an exclusive interview, Rachel's family told The Hunts Post it was just fortunate baby Dominic had not been in the car when it ran off the road on May 29.
