"Her smile was quite infectious"
Thousands have paid tribute in facebook to a Wirral teenager who was killed in a car crash over the weekend.
Charlotte Churchill, 19, died after the car she was traveling in collided with a tree near Mold on Saturday (9th).
Charlotte was a nursery nurse at Jack and Jill's Day Nursery in Oxton, Birkenhead.
Manager Jo Martin paid tribute to her smile: "Charlotte was a lovely bubbly girl, very happy, always came into work with a smile on her face which was quite infectious, you were never down when Charlotte was around.
"The children all still talking about her, she was very much loved by the children.
"The team are obviously really upset by the news but they've all be really strong, they've pulled together, and we're getting through it as a team."
