An 89-year-old woman's died after a crash in Bexhill.

Shortly after 2pm on Thursday two cars were in collision on the A259 Barnhorn Road.

The driver of one of them - Margaret Deane - was flown by air ambulance to the Royal Sussex County Hospital in Brighton, where she died two days later.

She would have been 90 in just over a weeks' time.

Her sons Mark and Keith have now paid tribute to their mum.

"She was a mother, grandmother and great-grandmother.

"She grew up and met our dad in Brighton and lived in Canterbury and Bedford before moving back to Brighton when they retired.

"She moved to Bexhill to be closer to us when dad died.

"Our mum was selfless and always put others before herself and would drive the ladies from her block of flats around to lunch and for shopping.

"She was still so active going walking and often going to Brighton for the Women's Guild.

"When she was younger she took part in competitive swimming and badminton."
