Police are waiting to question Angela Dublin, 45, a nurse, who was driving her son and six friends on Saturday night on the Oxford ring-road when she lost control of her car.

Josh Barlett, Liam Hastings and Marshall Haynes, all 13, died instantly. Howard Hillsdon, 21, also died when the Citroen hit his car. The others are in Oxford's John Radcliffe hospital in a critical condition.

Mrs Dublin's son, Anton, who was celebrating his 13th birthday, remains critical. However Connor Hunt and Aiden Wood were reported to be showing some "positive progress".
