Family’s tribute to ‘beloved mum’ killed on M25 by dangerous and reckless driver

The daughter of a woman killed in a crash on the M25 has paid tribute to her “beloved mum”. Zoe Hawes, 39, was one of two people fatally killed after a van collided with a vehicle on the M25.

Barancan Nurcin, 22, of High Road in Tottenham, was sentenced to 18 years imprisonment on Friday (June 21) after pleading guilty to several driving offences. The collision occurred on February 4 between J22 and 21A. Zoe, from Essex, was travelling to Luton Airport to go on holiday for her 40th birthday whilst Fahad had been a passenger in Nurcin’s vehicle.

In a statement after the sentencing, Zoe’s daughter, Bella, said: “We accept the sentence but there’s never anything that can fix what has happened to our family. We have lost our sister, the children their beloved mum and Wayne his wife and soul mate.”
