A PERMANENT tribute has been unveiled to a little girl who died in a car crash.
Teachers and pupils at a primary school were joined by the family of Mya Richardson as they planted the first strands of a willow tunnel – showing their love for the six-year-old who was killed last August.
Mya and her mum Joanne, 40, originally from Hartlepool, died when their vehicle was hit head-on by a car heading the wrong way up the A1 motorway, near Newcastle.
The youngster was a pupil at St Paul’s Roman Catholic Primary School, in Billingham. Staff and pupils decided to create a willow tunnel as their way of paying tribute to the pupil whose happiness and fun had lit up their lives.
