HEARTFELT tributes have been paid to an Oldbury nurse who was killed in a crash on the M6.

Victoria Kavanagh, aged 41 from Oldbury, died when the Citroen C1 she was driving was involved in a crash with two lorries on the M6 between Wednesbury and Walsall, just before 9am on Monday (July 27).

Ms Kavanagh suffered critical injuries in the crash and was pronounced dead at the scene.

Both lorry drivers stopped at the scene and are assisting officers in their investigation, West Midlands Police said.

Ms Kavanagh’s family paid tribute to her, saying: "Victoria was a loving mother and daughter and a friend to everyone she met.

“She graduated 18 months ago in children’s nursing and got her dream job shortly after working with safeguarding children.

“She had just been accepted to study for her Masters in Public Health and had so much to look forward to.

“She will leave behind a massive hole in our lives and will be forever missed."

DC Damian Gibson from the Serious Collision Investigation Unit, said: "A woman has tragically lost her life and we are doing everything to piece together the moments leading to her death.

"We are continuing to appeal to anyone who witnessed the collision or with dashcam footage to contact us."
