A mum-of-four and a young man who were killed after a car crashed into a tree on the A34 in Cheshire have been pictured for the first time.

Gemma Gregoy, 32, and Drew Pedley, 22, died in the early hours of Sunday morning following a crash in Marton.

Friends and family have been left devastated with tributes pouring onto social media, with one pal describing Gemma as a caring mum-of-four, reports the Mirror Online.

Gemma's parents said: "Gemma was a special daughter who was taken too soon, she was a loving mother, sister and will be sadly missed by the whole family. Rest in peace.”

Gemma Gregory, 32, was a mum-of-four with three daughters and a young son with a rare genetic disorder

A GoFundMe page created to help her family says: "Sadly in the early hours of the September 27 Gemma Gregory was taken tragically in a car accident.

"Aged 32 years no life insurance with her being so young nobody expects this. Gemma was a devoted mother to 4 children who she loved dearly.

"Leaving behind a very big family with their loss is something no one should ever have to deal with. Any help is greatly appreciated thanks for reading."

Drew Pedley, 22, also died following the crash in Marton, Cheshire

Paying tribute to the mum, Tanya Fletcher wrote on Facebook she had left behind three daughters and a three-year-old boy called AJ, who has a rare genetic disorder.

She added: "She spent her life caring for him 24 hours a day.

"The family want to give her the send off she deserves (and) it's currently the last thing on their minds having to bury their child, every parent's worst nightmare."

The crash took place on the A34 Congleton Road, in Cheshire

Drew’s parents said: “Drew was a loving son to Suzanne Lawton and Andrew Whitehouse, brother to Dan and Dex and devoted partner to Chloe. He will be sadly missed by all.”

His friend Nicole Pryde Jarvis added: "We will never forget you!

"You have touched so many hearts this morning. I'm never gonna forget our banter and moaning at me to pluck your eye brows all the time.

"I really can not believe I'm actually writing this. Only last week we were on face time having our laughs and Eliza shouting at you. I'm gonna miss you so much. Love you forever and always."

Police have launched an investigation to the cause of the crash and enquiries are ongoing.
