Their parents' condition was described as stable and improving.

The family, who live in the north Leeds area, are understood to have been returning from a holiday in Europe when the crash happened at around 9.30am on Friday.

A Leeds couple, who are friends of the family, said they have visited the surviving members in hospital.

The couple, who did not want to be named, said: "It is really sad. They are very nice people.

He (the father) was always taking his children to football and to swimming. It is a shock for everybody."

An inquest into Alin Mosa's death was due to be opened in Folkestone yesterday, but was adjourned until next Wednesday while a post-mortem report is set to be carried out.

The family's grey Kia Soul was in a crash with a black DAF lorry.
