A FOUR-YEAR-OLD Swanage girl who was killed in a two-car crash was "loveable and wonderful", her family have said.

Darcy-May Elm died in the crash on the A40, west of Carmarthen in Wales on Saturday.

Dyfed-Powys Police shut the road for seven hours to investigate the crash, which involved a blue Nissan Micra and a black Skoda Fabia.

In a statement released by police, the family said: "We are totally heartbroken by the loss of our Darcy-May."

They added: "She was an adorable, beautiful daughter and granddaughter.

"Darcy-May was a cheeky, loveable and wonderful little girl, taken from us all far too soon.

"Darcy-May will be missed dearly by us all."

Both of Darcy-May's parents, Dani and Daniel, are still in hospital after the crash, but the extent of their injuries is not known.

Dani used to work at the Swanage and Wareham Advertiser as a media sales consultant, part of the same group as the Daily Echo.

A spokesman for the company said: "Our thoughts are with Dani and her family at this time."

No arrests have been made and a police investigation into the crash is ongoing.

An online fundraising campaign to help with funeral costs topped £12,000 within two days.
