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.”
