A principle of a King's Lynn Academy has paid tribute to a teenage girl killed in a crash in West Lexham, saying she had plans to become a doctor.

Aylisha Cain was out running with her mother on July 8 in the West Lexham area when they were involved in a collision with a lorry. Aylisha was pronounced dead at the scene and her mother was seriously injured.

Craig Morrison, principal at the King Edward VII Acadamy in Kings Lynn, where Aylisha was a student, paid tribute to her saying she had plans to study medicine at the University of East Anglia.

He said: 'Staff and students at King Edward VII Academy would like to express their deepest sadness and sympathies on hearing confirmation that Aylisha Cain was tragically lost to us on Friday, 8 July.

'Aylisha was a very intelligent, warm and generous person. She came to us from Litcham School having done incredibly well in her GCSEs. She was studying maths, biology, physics and Spanish with a view to studying medicine at the UEA in future.

'She constantly strived to do the very best she could and was committed to being involved in a wide range of activities. She would no doubt have gone on to do many more great things and those who knew her well will hold her close in their memories.

The crash happened on a hill around half a mile north of All Saints Church.
