A devastated family have paid tribute to a mum and grandmother who was killed in a car crash.
Mrs Haywood was driving on Romney Road in a black Dacia Duster Ambiance on Sunday evening, when it was involved in a collision with a white BMW M135i.
Two passengers in the BMW – 26 year-old Jack Ryle-Thompsett from Lydd and a man in his 40s from Hull – also died in the tragedy.
The driver of the BMW, a man in his 30s, was airlifted to a London hospital with serious injuries.
Mrs Haywood's daughter, Rachel Stephens, said that she would be "missed by so many".
She said: "Those who knew mum, know she was a much loved Mum and Grandma, who was tragically taken from us."
"Mum left for work and never came home"
The 58-year-old, who lived in Kennington, leaves behind three children and seven grandchildren.
Born in Ramsgate, she spent many years of her life on the Marsh, living in New Romney and Lydd, before moving to the Ashford area.
The healthcare worker was travelling to attend her service users when the tragic incident occurred.
Mrs Stephens said: "Mum left for work and never came home.
"She was a dedicated health worker who lived for her job and caring for others."
Flowers have been left at the crash site on Romney Road, while wellwishers have paid tribute to Mrs Haywood and also to Mr Ryle-Thompsett.
The 26-year-old's family paid tribute yesterday to the father-to-be, who was expecting a daughter with his partner Georgie.
A fundraising page has been set up in Mrs Haywood's memory, to provide for her family in the wake of her death.
Mrs Stephens said: "Unfortunately we were unprepared for this event and any help would be so gratefully received to try and ease the financial strain that this tragic accident has brought to the family."
