The family of two young brothers who were killed in a Christmas Day motorway crash have paid tribute to their "happy and joyous boys".

Adnan Habib, 10, and Arsalaan, four, were killed on the M6. Their family said: "Adnan and Arsalaan were our family's precious jewels, spreading joy wherever they went.

"They were happy and joyous boys who were a central part of the family, always smiling and bringing smiles to everyone they met."

Their 32-year-old aunt, Bushra Tazarib, also died in the crash which happened close to junction 15, near Stoke-on-Trent, at about 11.25am.

She was described as "beloved", "helping" and supportive.

Two other women were travelling in the car, including the boys' mother. Both were taken to hospital but discharged on Boxing Day after treatment.
