A church vicar has paid tribute to a mother and her three children who were killed in a fatal crash on the A40 near Oxford.

Zoe Powell died alongside her two daughters, Phoebe, eight, and Amelia, four, and their six-year-old brother Simeon.

Her husband Josh, 30, and their 18-month-old baby girl survived the crash and remain at the John Radcliffe Hospital in 'critical but stable condition'.

Reverand Dr Jacky Barr paid tribute to the family in the above video by the Press Association.

The 29-year-old mother, who lived in Chinnor with her family, wrote about the joys of motherhood on her blog The Mama Book.

Emergency services were called at 9.50pm on Monday night to reports of a collision involving a silver Subaru people carrier and a white 'heavy goods' vehicle.

The driver of the truck, a 56-year-old man, suffered minor injuries.
