Another, D said: “Rest in peace Bri, you deserve so much better and will be missed so much I hope you can finally be at peace.”
The teenager’s family paid tribute to their “much-loved daughter, granddaughter, and baby sister”, saying “the loss of her young life has left a massive hole in our family”.
