Three Emirati children and their nanny have died following a horrific crash in Abu Dhabi's Al-Falah area.

According to preliminary investigations, their mother, who is in a critical condition, was driving without a licence.

Officials said she lost control of the vehicle due to speeding and rammed the car into a lamppost. 

The children were aged between 11 and 15. 

Abu Dhabi police are stressing the risk of driving without a valid licence, and urging motorists to abide by the traffic laws.
