Sisters killed in Morocco crash

Tara and Pippa Darlington have been killed in a car crash in Morocco, police said

Two sisters have been killed in a car crash in Morocco, police said.

Pippa and Tara Darlington were on an "adventure of a lifetime" when they died.

Wiltshire Police said Pippa, 21, and Tara, 23, from Whiteparish, Salisbury, Wiltshire, were killed in the road accident in the early hours of Monday.

Their friend Joshua Stump, 21, also from Salisbury, was seriously injured and is in a coma in hospital.

The sisters' parents, Patrick and Emma, said in a statement released by police: "We are, as a family, completely devastated at the loss of both our daughters, Tara and Pippa, in a car accident in Morocco.

"They were two of the most beautiful, dynamic, energetic and fun-loving girls who brought light and laughter to whoever met them. They made a difference to so many lives and they lit up every room on entering.

"This trip was to be an adventure of a lifetime for which they had planned, worked hard and saved together for months to be able to do.

"They were joined on this adventure by Josh Stump who is currently in a coma fighting for his life in Rabat Hospital. Our thoughts and prayers are for him and his parents and little sister Emily."
