Goldsmiths student and sister die in Morocco car crash
TWO sisters have died in a car crash while on "an adventure of a lifetime" in Morocco.
Goldsmiths student Tara Darlington, 23, and her 21-year-old sister Pippa were tragically killed in the accident on September 17 while a friend of theirs, Josh Stump, 21, was left in a coma.
Their family said in a statement: "We are as a family completely devastated at the loss of both our daughters.
"They were two of the most beautiful, dynamic, energetic and fun-loving girls who brought light and laughter to whoever met them.
"They made a difference to so many lives and they lit up every room on entering.
"This trip was to be an adventure of a lifetime for which they had planned, worked hard and saved together for months to be able to do."
Tara Darlington was studying media, journalism and sociology at the New Cross university and had just started up her own business called Savvy Social Media. A prospective journalist in her final year of study, she had recently been offered a post in New York.
Her younger sister Pippa had secured a place at Newcastle University to study law.
The family, from Wiltshere, said: "They will be forever young and together."
"They were two of the most beautiful, dynamic, energetic and fun-loving girls who brought light and laughter to whoever met them."
Both sisters, known as the Darlington Double, had recently told parents Patrick, 62, and Emma, 52, they were having the time of their life and promised to be home in 10 days.
The family said: "They will be forever young and together."
Brother Oscar, 15, said: "They are my darling sisters and I love them very much. I was just reaching an age where we could do things together. Gone so soon, they will never be forgotten and always in my heart."
