Paying tribute, her family said: "Hannah, not only were you our daughter and sister, you were also our best friend. You were kind and caring, and would do anything for anyone. You made us laugh and cry.

"Hannah, you will be missed and you will be in our hearts and thoughts now, and always. Sleep well darling Hannah. Love as always."

Her family and friends have asked their privacy be respected at this difficult time.

Police have said they remain keen to speak with anyone who saw the incident, was in the area at the time, or has dashcam footage of the collision.

They would particularly like to speak to the driver of a small, dark, hatchback car who was seen driving down Auxerre Avenue at around the time of the incident as they may be a key witness and could help with the investigation.

Anyone with any information is being asked to call West Mercia Police on 101 quoting incident number 133s of 26 August 2019.
