The families of two parents killed in a crash on the M4 have said they are totally devastated by their deaths.

Passenger Sarah-Jayne Thomas, 28, from Penlan in Swansea died at the scene of the one-car incident between junction 37 for Porthcawl and junction 38 for Margam, on Tuesday.

Driver Timothy Peter Grace, 31, from Treboeth in Swansea, died later in hospital.

They had four children under the age of 10 between them.

The family of Ms Thomas said she was "the perfect little sister" and a loving mother to her sons Harley, nine, and Jason, six.

"She will be missed by her family and everyone that knew her," they added.

Mr Grace was described as good father to his two children - aged nine and two.

His parents and younger brother thanked the emergency services and extended their condolences to Ms Thomas's family.

South Wales Police is continuing its investigation into the crash, which involved a grey BMW X5 and saw the motorway closed for almost seven hours.

A police force spokesman said: "We are continuing to appeal for anyone who witnessed the collision or the manner in which the vehicle was being driven prior to it.

"We also want people who have any dash-cam footage to contact our Serious Collision Investigation Unit."
