A woman killed in a three-car collision had an "infectious laugh" and was always smiling, her family has said.

Linda Tilbrook, 39, of Franklynn Road, Haywards Heath, was driving a Toyota Yaris on the A272 Cuckfield by-pass when the crash happened last Thursday.

Paying tribute to her in a statement, her family said her "infectious laugh and cheeky grin lit up the darkest room".

"She was a positive, thoughtful and a kind spirited person," they said.

A 61-year-old man, from Hurstpierpoint, who was driving a Mercedes C63, suffered serious but not life-threatening injuries, while a 39-year-old woman, from Henfield, who was driving a VW Jetta, was unhurt.
