BRAVE teenagers who were in a terrible car crash in January visited a youth centre in Brackley this week to see a wall packed with messages of support.

On Saturday, January 28, 15-year-olds Millie Toman and Hollie Nisbett were passengers in a red MG Rover ZR travelling along the A422 bypass when it left the road.

The accident resulted in an outpouring of support for those injured and saw hundreds attended a candle lit vigil. Many more gave their support through social networking websites.

On Wednesday Millie and Hollie visited the Brackley Youth Hub whose members had dedicated a wall for messages of support. Millie said: “I didn’t think I had that many friends. But it has really helped me, it’s taken my mind off things and given me a reason to come back.”

Hollie escaped serious injury but is now having to cope with the memories of what she saw that night.

Millie’s parents Dave and Fiona praised both teenagers; Millie for her determination to get well and Hollie for getting help quickly after the accident.
