An inquest into a fatal road collision in England which involved an Irish couple and their child last week will be heard in Plymouth on Monday.

Connie & Elber Twomey are today reported to be in a critical but stable condition in hospital in Plymouth.

Devon & Cornwall Police officially confirmed the identities of those killed in the Torquay crash in a statement issued today.

They were the couple’s 16-month-old son Oisín, and the driver of a second car Marek Wojiechowski, 26.

Mr Wojiechowski lived locally with his wife and family.

The Twomeys also lost an unborn daughter in the crash. The baby girl was christened Elber Marie, after her mother.

Detective Inspector Costa Nassaris said police "are conducting a thorough investigation into this incident in order to determine the cause of the collision, and the Independent Police Complaints Commission is conducting a separate, independent investigation into the police involvement.”

Inspector Nassaris confirmed that family liaison officers have been appointed to the families.
