A fundraising appeal has been launched for two little girls whose mum died in crash in Rotherham yesterday.

Megan Borrows, aged 24, died when the car she was a passenger in crashed into two parked cars on Kimberworth Road, Kimberworth, in the early hours.

She was a mum of two young girls, and a family friend who set up an online fundraising page for the youngsters said the money would be used to 'make the lives a bit easier during this awful time'.

Megan, who grew up in Rawmarsh, was in a grey MG ZR which crashed near to the junction with Psalters Lane at 2.30am yesterday.

A 22-year-old man who was also a passenger in the car suffered serious injuries and was taken to hospital but the driver was not at the scene when emergency services arrived.

It has not yet been revealed whether the motorist has been traced.

Tributes to Megan have been paid on social media sites, including one from Bethan Middleton, who described her as 'beautiful' and an 'amazing mother'.

Charlie Chedgzoy, who said Megan who was her best friend, turned to Facebook to write: "Memories last a lifetime Meg and I'll never forget you.

"Amazing mum to your beautiful girls and funniest best friend to have."

Karen Kimpton wrote: "You will always be my best friend and sister. I can't believe you're gone. I will love you forever and I promise you I will make sure the kids know how much you loved them and what a wonderful, fun loving person you where.

"We've told the girls your a beautiful angel and you're going to watch down over them forever."

Former school friend, Joe Mercer, wrote: "I went through school with Megan Borrows and she was one of the nicest, funniest lasses to come from Rawmarsh. Can't believe it. Thoughts go out to all the family especially her two little girls."
