Following reports her life support had been turned off, Home and Away tweeted: "Rest in peace, lovely Jessica Falkholt".

After weeks spent in the Intensive Care Unit at St George Hospital, Jessica's life support was turned off last night.

Jessica's sister, mother and father all died in the Boxing Day crash.

Both Jessica and Annabelle were pulled from the burning wreckage and taken to hospitals.
