Family pay tribute to mother and daughter following fatal Boxing Day collision in Shard End

THE family of a mother and daughter who died in a collision on Boxing Day have paid an emotional tribute to them both.

Linda Philips, aged 72, and Amanda Riley, aged  49, both died on December 26 2023, following a collision involving car crash at the junction of Kitt’s Green Road, and Mackadown Lane, in Shard End.

A family tribute said: “Linda was a beautiful and dearly loved wife, mother, grandmother, great-grandmother, sister, auntie, and so much more.

“Her husband, children, grandchildren, and family loved Linda very much, and Linda absolutely adored her family.

“Amanda was a beautiful and much-loved mother, daughter, grandmother, sister and auntie.

“Amanda’s parents, daughters, and grandchildren loved her so much, and Amanda was the apple of her grandchildren’s eye.

“The family are devastated, and respectfully ask for privacy at this extremely difficult time.

“We ask, if anyone has any information, however small, please come forward, so that the families can get justice for Linda and Amanda.”

Two men were arrested following the collision.

One has been de-arrested as he recovers from his injuries.

He will be spoken to again in due-course.

The other has since been released with no further action.

Anyone with any dashcam footage, or with any information about what happened, is asked to contact West Midlands police by calling 101 or via Live Chat on our website quoting 2873 of 26/12/23.
