The manufacturer’s recommended tire pressure for the Ford Fiesta is 34psi, but Talia’s was only 12psi.

PC Sawyer said the deflated tire would not have been immediately noticeable. He told the hearing the nail had only recently punctured the tire as there was no evidence that it has been in place for any length of time.

Family Statement

After the death of their mother, she went on to study health and social care at the University of Nottingham.

A graduation ceremony was held five days after the tragedy. Her family still attended the ceremony in her memory.

Kirsty said: ‘Everyone loved her so much. She excelled in everything she did.’

She added: ‘Sadly her new life was cut short just five days before her graduation. We still attended the graduation.’

The sister told how Talia had grown up with a hole in her heart, but it had healed as she grew older.

‘She was a fantastic, loving person with a heart of gold, loved by everyone. She had achieved her dream job.’

Talia, who had a twin brother, Soul, was aunt to four nieces and three nephews.

Kirsty added: ‘She was usually late for everything. It was a standing joke in the family that she would be late for her funeral.

‘At her funeral, we arranged for everyone to be in 15 minutes before, so it appeared she was late.

Police Report

The police officer said: ‘Coming over some of the undulations, as it has come down and there may have been some kind of steering attempt and the car started to rotate. The car may have lurched one way or the other. But it started to rotate and cross over onto the verge and struck the tree.’

He added: ‘It is possible there was some braking. It would have been difficult to contain.’

The officer said that the severe front impact of the collision caused the speedometer to ‘freeze’ between 85mph and 90mph.

He said there was no evidence a seatbelt was being worn at the time of the impact.

She had not been using her mobile phone, crash investigators revealed after retrieving it from the scene.

A post mortem examination revealed the newly-qualified social worker died from chest injuries.

First, on the scene, motorist Kerry Ogg said she was traveling in the opposite direction on Ermine Street when she saw a plume of smoke ahead.

She called emergency services. But she realized that the driver had been killed in the impact of the tree.

Police officers were first on the scene, soon followed by fire crews and ambulance paramedics.
