It is a tragedy for everyone that her young life has ended so abruptly.
We would like to express our sincere gratitude to the staff at the Norfolk & Norwich and Addenbrookes hospitals who made Angela's final hours as bearable as possible, and our thanks to the Police for their ongoing support during the impossible days ahead.
We respectfully request that at this time we are left to come to terms with our sudden loss in private."
