Two brothers killed in a horrific Christmas Day pile-up on the M6 have been named.

Adnan Habib, 10, and Arsalaan, four, from High Wycombe, died when the Ford car they were in flipped onto its roof.

A 32-year-old woman, named as Bushra Tazarib, was also killed.

The accident, near junction 16 at Stoke on Trent, happened yesterday morning. 

A West Midlands Ambulance Service spokesman said: “Crews arrived to find a single vehicle that had crashed and overturned.

"Two children and an adult in the vehicle suffered serious injuries.

“Unfortunately, despite the best efforts of ambulance crews, nothing could be done to save the two boys and one woman, and they were confirmed dead at the scene.

"The circumstances were exceptionally difficult.”

Two other women, one the boys’ mother who was driving, were taken to hospital after the incident, which caused huge queues for motorists going in both directions. Both were discharged today.

Anyone with information about the crash is urged to contact the force's collision investigation unit on 01785 234094.
