The parents of a 14-year-old girl who died in a crash on her way to a school trip have paid tribute to their “beautiful daughter”.

Holly Brown was on a minibus when it was involved in a collision with a bin lorry on the A38 on July 7.

The teenager – who attended John Taylor High School alongside her twin sister – died at the scene.

In a statement her family said: “Holly, our beautiful daughter and twin sister to Emma, we are so proud of what you achieved. You grasped every opportunity that life presented to you, displaying so much passion, enthusiasm and determination in pursuit of your dreams.

“All this without forgetting to care about people, being there for others and having time for those that needed it.

“We will miss you so much but you will always be in our thoughts, hearts and prayers.”
