"The woman, aged 56, from the Queen's Park area of London, who was a passenger in the Honda, was sadly declared dead at the scene by an air ambulance doctor.

"The girl was taken to St George's Hospital, Tooting, along with the 34-year-old driver of the car, a 26-year-old woman, and two other girls aged three and one, all of whom were seriously injured.

"All were from the same family from the Pimlico area of London."

The driver of the VW Golf, a 60-year-old man from Epsom, was taken to hospital with serious chest injuries, police said

His 58-year-old female passenger, also from Epsom, was treated for whiplash injuries.

The A24 was closed for around five hours while rescue and recovery work took place, the police spokesman said.
