Cambridgeshire Police have confirmed that a woman killed in a five vehicle crash at Wyton was a serving Police Officer, wife and mother of two children.

48 year old Detective Constable Sharon Garrett died at the scene on the A141 on Friday afternoon, when three cars and two lorries collided.

She was driving a Renault Clio involved in the crash.

DC Garrett joined Cambridgeshire Police in 1991.

She served in several roles across the force, most recently investigating complex fraud offences in the Economic Crime Unit.

She leaves her husband, Adrian, who is also a serving Cambridgeshire Police Officer and their two children.

Chief Constable Simon Parr said: "Detective Constable Sharon Garrett was an exceptional police officer and will be truly missed by all of the many friends and colleagues who she had within the constabulary.

The death of Sharon in such tragic circumstances is so incredibly sad.

My condolences and heartfelt sympathy go to her husband, children and immediate family but also to the many friends and colleagues who will feel the loss of such an exceptional person."

The driver of one of the lorries, a 26-year-old man from King's Lynn, was arrested on suspicion of causing death by dangerous driving.

He was interviewed and has been released on bail while police carry out further enquiries.
