Waiting for Video...

‘A wonderful and beautiful girl’ and ‘a shining example’ were just some of the tributes made to tragic hit-and-run victim Jasmyn Chan today.

Reverend Mike Reeder read out heartfelt messages of love for the 14-year-old who was killed trying to save her friend on Normanton Hill, Intake, on May 9, at her funeral today.

Reading one from a friend, he said: “I wouldn’t be where I am today if she hadn’t have been with me in everything. I love and miss my beautiful girl billions.”

Another said: “I miss Jasmyn so much. Everyone does. She was such a wonderful and beautiful girl. Nobody will ever forget Jazz. She is loved so much.”

Michael Fogg, of Michael Fogg Independent Funeral Directors, added: “This girl is a hero.

“To sacrifice her own life to save another is beyond belief at just 14 years old.

“We expect it of soldiers. But for a child to act like she did. There’s no words for it - she deserves a bravery award.”

Star readers also took to Facebook to add their tributes to Jasmyn.

Sharon Beech said: “Hope the family finds the strength to help them through and that the person that did this are brought to justice.”

Marie Gore added: “You were a shining example in life and now you will shine brightly in the sky.”
