In a statement released today, the family described the brothers as ‘precious jewels’, who were always smiling.
“We, as the rest of the nation, had the build-up to the Christmas holidays, attending school plays and preparing for a family wedding. The joy turned into tragedy in a split second, when we lost our boys moments apart and our beloved auntie,” the statement read.
“Adnan and Arsalaan were our family’s precious jewels, spreading joy wherever they went. They were happy and joyous boys who were a central part of the family, always smiling and bringing smiles to everyone they met.
“Bushra had been part of the family by marriage for almost 14 years, and was a vital person. Always helping and supporting every member at all times, regardless of difficulty and joy.
“We thank everyone for their kind words of support, and we would like everyone to remember them in your prayers.”
The boys' mother, who was driving the car, and another female passenger were taken to the University Hospital of North Staffordshire, but were released yesterday.
