A WOMAN who died after a collision involving a quad bike and a Land Rover near Killington has been named by police as Janet Gorst.
Mrs Gorst, 43, of Old Hutton, died as a result of injuries sustained from the collision on the Old Scotch Road between Sedbergh and Kendal.
Mrs Gorst, of Mutton Hall, Killington, was the treasured wife of Dick, and the mother of three wonderful children, Lydia, Joe and Sam.
She also sadly leaves behind an extended family where she had the role of being a beloved daughter, sister, niece, auntie and a much loved friend.
A tribute from Mrs Gorst's family described her as 'a farmer and proud stockman'.
"Janet was a Christian whose motto in life was live life passionately, laugh until your belly hurts and love unconditionally.”
The full circumstances of the collision, in which Mrs Gorst was driving the quad bike, are currently being investigated by police.
