A Norfolk school has paid tribute to the “lovely” teenage girl who died after being struck by a bus in Caister.
Shannon Goodson, 14, was a pupil at Great Yarmouth High School and has been described as a “popular” student.
Headteacher Wendy Missons said in a statement: “We were all shocked and deeply sorry to hear of the accident, and there were many tears.
“Shannon was a lovely, popular girl and will be deeply missed by students, staff and all those who worked with her.
“Our thoughts are with Shannon’s family at this difficult time: we are here for you.”
Hundreds of people have also taken to social media to pay tribute to the “beautiful” teen while more than 4,900 people have ‘liked’ a Facebook page set up in her name.
Among those posting on the site was Liz Irving who said: “My heartfelt sympathy goes to the family of this beautiful child taken before her life’s journey really started, thinking of her family and friends x.”
A police investigation into the circumstances of Saturday’s fatal crash is ongoing, as officers continue to appeal for witnesses.
