A 72-year-old woman from Uppingham has died in a road accident in Cumbria, police have confirmed.

Dr Fiona Stewart, of Springbank Way, was involved in a three-car crash on the A66 in Warcop at about 5pm on Tuesday.

Emergency services were called but Ms Stewart sadly died at the scene.

A 55-year-old man was flown by air ambulance to James Cook Hospital in Middlesborough having sustained minor injuries. Another man, aged 41, did not sustain any injuries.

The cars involved were a green Ford Focus, a grey BMW, and a grey Renault Megane.

Anyone who witnessed the collision is asked to call Cumbria Police on 101 and ask to speak to PC 665 Richard Bowman.

Dr Stewart’s family released a statement following her death. They said: “Dr Fiona Stewart was a retired teacher and academic. At the time of the collision, Fiona was on her way from her home in Rutland to visit family in Scotland. She was born in Glasgow, and lived in New Zealand before moving back to Britain.

“She leaves behind her husband, three children and a granddaughter and will be sadly missed.”
