A THIRTEEN-month-old baby girl killed in a car crash on the A12 near Southwold has been named.

It is believed Khedicia Morris had been travelling to Blundeston Prison, near Lowestoft, with her mother and two sisters, aged seven and five. She died when her car failed to negotiate a bend and left the road at Henham at around 2.15pm on Saturday.

The dark red Fiat Brava then hit a tree, causing the baby serious injuries and minor injuries to other members of the family.

She was first taken to the James Paget Hospital, Gorleston, before being transferred to the Great Ormond Street Hospital for Sick Children in London for its specialist care and to be closer to the family home in the Tottenham area of the capital.
