The family of a 70 year old lady who died following a road traffic collision in Petersfield, have released the following statement in tribute to her:

‘Elaine Helen McAuley Billington was born in Glasgow on the 12th of January 1948 and died on Thursday the 10th of January, 2019.

She moved to Petersfield from the North East with her husband in 2011. Elaine was full of energy, and was very active in the local community.

She was a volunteer bereavement counsellor for Cruse, a governor of Alton College, and a regular helper at the pop-in centre run by Winton House.

She will be deeply missed by her friends and family, including her husband John, her children Anna and David, and her four grandchildren Harvey, Fraser, Thomas and Douglas.’

Police are still appealing for any witnesses to the collision, which occurred at 3.50pm on January 10, in The Spain, Petersfield.

Mrs Billington was crossing the road when she was in collision with a black Citroen DS5, which was turning right from Charles Street.

Mrs Billingston sustained fatal head injuries and died at Southampton General Hospital.
