Travel and tourism student at London Metropolitan University. Hit by a truck turning left on top of her. The 65-year-old driver, Mr Roe, was arrested on suspicion of causing death by careless driving and bailed pending further inquiries. In February 2013 the case against him was withdrawn. At the coroner's inquest the driver said "I did not see her at all." Oh, well, that's OK then.
