A teenager who died after she was attacked at a caravan park outside Herne Bay has been described as a "beautiful young lady".

Police have charged Richard Kray with murdering the teenager and attempting to murder a second victim at a separate address in the town on the same day.

"It's such a tragedy this has happened to such a young and beautiful lady..." - Jade Blackmer

Jade Blackmer, who went to Hampton Primary School with Olivia, said she was a caring person.

"She was the most quiet and polite young girl going," Jade said.

"She was very reserved and conscious of others, she didn't smile often but when she did it lit up the room.

"It's such a tragedy this has happened to such a young and beautiful lady."

Richard Kray, who is thought to live at the caravan park and be related to his alleged victim, was charged with murder and attempted murder last night.

He is due to appear before Medway magistrates tomorrow.
