    The sister of Eve Smith – one of the three victims of the Newport road crash – has paid an emotional tribute to the dead 21-year-old.

    Sherridan Borg had already lost another sister in a road accident when Xana Doyle, 19, was killed in an horror smash involving a drug driver. Eve was 13 at the time of the tragedy while Sherridan was 15.

    Now Sherridan says her two lost sisters will be "safe up there together".

    As police officially named the three young people who lost their lives in the horror smash, Sherridan said: "Eve, My beautiful little sister I've cried laughed and fought with you every week, but I've never been without you."

    The three people killed with Eve in the accident have been named by South Wales Police as Rafel Jeanne, 24, from Cardiff, and Darcy Ross, 21, from Newport.

    Two other people who had been in the car when it crashed off the A48 near Newport – Sophie Russon, 20, and Shane Loughlin, 32, were left alive but severely injured after the crash.

    In a cruel twist of fate, Sophie's mum had driven within 20 yards of the spot where the bank worker lay gravely injured in the car alongside her three dead friends.
