“She loved music, festival’s, concerts, making TikToks, taking selfies and spending time with family and friends.

“She leaves her mum Kerry and her partner Rob, dad Paul and his partner Shala, sister Ella, brother Tommy, and boyfriend Taylor Benson.

“She lived life to the full, very comical, a wonderful daughter, sister and friend.”

Lucy, who was a former pupil at Outwood Academy Newbold, has been described by teachers as a “lovely young woman full of promise” in a tribute by teachers.

Her aunt, Karie Bell-Wriggs, is running an online fundraising page to allow people to contribute towards the costs of her funeral.

On Saturday, a total of £2,300 was raised in an event called ‘Luce Fest’, inspired by a mini-festival that the teenager had held last year for her mum’s birthday in their back garden.
