Internet awash with Ringwood schoolgirl tributes

Tributes have flooded in for the 16 year-old school girl who died on Sunday evening after a collision on the A31 near Ringwood.

According to reports, Jade Clark was killed on Sunday evening after her scooter was involved in a collision between Verwood on-slip road and the A338 off-slip road.

Since then, many have paid their respects for the Ringwood student, including a Facebook support page receiving over 1,300 likes in just 19 hours.

Tributes for the late Ms Clark included Becky Preston from Poole, who said: “I am still in shock, we all are. I can’t quite believe what’s happened.

“Some people in life you meet and just like and you were one of them. Funky, beautiful, funny, kind and caring, rest peacefully,” said Ms Preston.

Another tribute from Stephanie Feltham read: “I only started to get to know you but you were still like a close friend to me. You’re just a shining star that brights up the night sky. I love you princess.”

Recently, road safety charity, Brake, welcomed the news that Transport Secretary Patrick McLoughlin may cancel plans for 80mph motorways in the UK.

Brake had argued that increasing speed limits to 80mph would result in more violent deaths and injuries on the road, increased carbon emissions and an increased financial burden on the public, the NHS and the emergency services.

Senior campaigns officer for Brake Ellen Booth said: “We welcome this indication that plans for 80mph limits will be ditched.

“The evidence is there that 80mph limits would mean more violent deaths and injuries, so even a trial could lead to more families suffering the horror of a crash.”

Dorset Police are yet to release more information concerning the incident on Sunday, although it is believed that there could have been at least two vehicles involved in the crash.
