Launching a funeral appeal, heartbroken sister Katy said: “I am writing this with a very massive dark hole in my heart.

"We all know by now the very sad and devastating news of our beautiful sister/daughter/niece/auntie/mother and friend Sarah tragically losing her life in the early hours of Saturday morning by the most awful accident.

"I can't even get my head around this nor can anybody else. We are all so very numb at this sad time.

"I'm asking for help from anyone that knew Sarah and knows our family and knows what my parents have been through.

"Unfortunately, we lost our eldest brother in 2015 and now we’re having to go through this all again.

“She was loved so much by many and she had such a loving heart.

"Sarah adored her two children and always needed to be around family.

"This is so hard having to write this. My family and parents have been through so very much – no parents should have to deal with this, we are broken.”
