Heartbreaking tributes have been paid to a teenage girl who died after being hit by a train.

Evie Wright, 15, died on March 6 at the Corondale foot crossing in Weston-Super-Mare, North Somerset.

Police are not treating her death as suspicious.

In a statement, her family said: "Our beautiful 15-year-old daughter Evie Alicia Wright sadly lost her life after being struck by a train on Tuesday.

"This is a devastating time for our family and we ask that our privacy is respected and that people are sensitive as to what is being posted on social media."

"We appreciate all of the flowers, cards and gifts that you have all left for Evie," the statement continued.

"We would like you to know your kind notes have comforted us at this sad time."

Floral tributes were left at the crossing, including one with a card that said: "To my little girl, one red rose for every year you have given me happiness.

"My heart is broken, you will always be my precious little girl. I am so proud of you and I always will be. Sleep tight, sweetheart."

Another note signed from "Mr Wood, Miss White and your maths class" was attached to some flowers.

It said: "You will be deeply missed in your maths lessons. Thoughts and prayers with your friends and family. Rest in peace."

A spokesman for British Transport Police said: "A 15-year-old girl has sadly died after she was struck by a train at Corondale level crossing in Weston-super-Mare.

"Her family have been informed of her death and are being supported by specially trained family liaison officers.
