    Graduate, 22, who became sister’s guardian after parents died is killed in car crash

    A heartbroken family has paid tribute to a "caring and considerate" 22-year-old who was her sister's carer after the death of their parents.

    Alice Birchall died in hospital following a horror car crash in Leeds on Saturday evening.

    Alice, who was carer for her younger sister Amy, had been due to start her dream job in just two weeks, Leeds Live reports.

    She "protected Amy with her whole heart", her devastated loved ones said.

    In a statement her family said: “Alice was the most caring and considerate young women you would ever wish to meet.

    "The passing of both her mum and dad at a young age meant that Alice matured quickly and became a guardian to her younger sister Amy.

    "She protected Amy with her whole heart and cared for her so very well.

    “Alice is loved by more than an army of people. Alice’s life was finally coming together, she had graduated from university with a history degree and she had just secured her dream job working in fine jewellery, which she was due to start in two weeks’ time.

    “Alice was the happiest she had ever been with her whole future in front of her. This incident has left Amy devastated at the loss of her guardian but more importantly her best friend.

    "The whole family is in shock and have no words that could truly understand the cruelty of the situation. Alice deserved so much better than what happened.”
