In a statement read to the inquest, the family said: “Kelsey liked to travel. She had helped underprivileged people in Tanzania.

“There was this one night where she called into Tesco on her way back and saw a homeless person. She went in and bought them a pillow and a duvet. That’s the sort of person she was.

“She would care for everybody and she was working seven days a week to save up for her first house. She was loved by all her friends. She will be missed.”

Kelsey, 31, from Cheadle, Greater Manchester was more than twice over the drink driving limit and speeding at 68mph at the time of the collision.

She was pronounced dead at the scene of the crash when emergency services arrived.

Her family have expressed surprise at the speed she was going and the fact that she was drink-driving.

A relative said: “She wouldn’t drive at that speed on the motorway. She would be joked at by her friends who often called her ‘granny driver’.

“For the drinks, I know that she would not intentionally have driven knowing she had drunk.

“She wouldn’t have driven, she used to plan ahead if she knew she would have a drink, either staying at a BnB or at a friend’s house.

“She would have known what she was drinking. When she had a drink she planned.”

Kelsey had just finished a shift at 3D nightclub at the time of the smash, having worked there for around nine months.

A post-mortem found that she had died of multiple injuries.
