A weather presenter and television journalist has died in a car crash, the BBC has confirmed.

Police said her green Ford Fiesta left the B1116 at Weybread, Suffolk, on Friday and came to a halt in a field.

Mrs Williamson, who had worked as a weather presenter, producer, director and reporter was pronounced dead at the scene, Suffolk Police said.

Paul Woolwich, a BBC executive producer, who had been working with Mrs Williamson until her death, said: "We're deeply saddened by this news.

"Tricia was a fine filmmaker who was at the peak of her abilities, adored by everyone she worked with.

"Our thoughts and prayers go to her two boys and her family."

Mrs Williamson had worked on various shows, including Inside Out, London Tonight, BBC Look North and ITN's lunchtime news.
