A further statement has been released by the family of Ross and Clare Simons who were killed in a road traffic collision in Hanham:

"First of all we would like to thank everyone for their kindness. The police have been fantastic and have worked really hard, as have all the staff at Alderwick funeral directors, who have been amazing.

"We would also like to thank the people who were with Ross and Clare in their final moments, it gives us great comfort knowing they were not alone. But mostly we would like to thank our friends and families for all their support as this has been what has pulled us through this last week, and will continue to do so.

"We have now had it confirmed that Ross and Clare's funeral will be held on Friday 15th February at 11am, to be conducted at Westerleigh crematorium. We ask all who attend not to bring flowers as they will only be disposed of after a short time, instead we would appreciate donations that will be collected on the day, which will be forwarded to a Bristol IVF charity in the hope that it will give some other couple the chance of having a child. Both families are sure this is what Ross and Clare would have wanted.

"Also, could anyone who attends make sure they wear bright colours, and no black. This is because Ross and Clare were both colourful and bright people.

"Ross and Clare have left a huge hole in the lives of everyone who knew them. Both families are completely devastated at our loss and kindly request that we are left alone in order to grieve with friends and family."
