Boyfriend arrested after teenage gymnast dies in car crash

A teenage gymnast's boyfriend has been arrested on suspicion of dangerous driving after she died in a crash following a family dinner at a pub.

Former child model Claudia Ella Williams, 19, was killed as her boyfriend Rick Bromley 20, was driving them to her grandmother's house.

The gymnast for the Welsh national squad died after the Vauxhall Corsa hit a tree in the village of Guilden Sutton, Cheshire.

Her boyfriend escaped with minor bruising.

She and her boyfriend had been out for dinner at with her father Nigel and two younger sisters aged 17, and 10.

At 9.40pm they were driving through the countryside when the car veered off the road and hit a tree on the passenger side of the vehicle.

Shortly after the accident on June 24, Miss Williams' family publicly vowed to support Bromley, describing the couple as 'inseparable'.

However, he has now been questioned on suspicion of causing death by dangerous driving and has been freed on bail pending further inquiries.

Miss Williams, who lived with her mother Andrea in Hoole, Chester, was studying travel and tourism at West Cheshire College in Ellesmere Port and working as a hotel waitress in her spare time.

She began dating Bromley last year, and he had been living with her and her mother for six months before she died.

Last week Miss Williams' parents spoke of their devastation at losing a daughter they described as a 'princess who lived life to the full'.

Her mother told the local paper: "We are going to miss her so much - our lives will never be the same without her.

"She'll be forever in our hearts and always live on with us in our memories. Rick lived here for six months. They were inseparable and hadn't spent a night apart in six months."
