'Kind and caring mum' dies after M1 collision

A "KIND and caring" mum has died in hospital two days after being involved in a multi-vehicle collision on the M1.

Nicola Raistrick was involved in a collision on the southbound carriageway of the M1 on Wednesday between junctions 31 and 3 at around at 6.30am. 

Ms Raistrick was driving a black Vauxhall Corsa when it was involved in a collision with a maroon DAF HGV.

"As a result of the collision, the Corsa is said to have collided with the central barrier and a subsequent collision between the car, a yellow Volvo HGV and a silver Renault Trafic occurred," said a police spokeswoman. 

Ms Raistrick died in hospital on Friday.

Her family are being supported by specially trained officers.

In a statement her family described her as "loving mum, nanna and niece", adding: "She was kind, caring and thoughtful. She is loved by many and will be sadly missed."

No-one else was injured in the collision.

Officers are keen to hear from anyone who saw what happened, or has any dashcam footage.
