Sabrina Bellman died in the Boxing Day crash in north Cornwall

Sabrina Bellman, 26, died in the incident on the B3266 near Washaway, between Bodmin and Wadebridge, in north Cornwall last year, when she was on holiday coming back from a pantomime trip to watch Sleeping Beauty.

Mrs Bellman was holidaying with her husband, Dominic, mother-in-law, Dawn and their young daughter Ellie when the crash took place.

The four had to be cut out from the vehicle by fire crews and were taken to hospital but Sabrina was pronounced dead in the ambulance.
