Kat Rainbird said: "All the times we done your hair, read you stories, took you to the park and the shop for sweets I never imagined this in a million years - totally shocking."

Clare May Rainbird described the teenager as a "beautiful soul never to be forgotten".

The car which Casey was in had been previously drawn to the attention of police when it was parked on the A2 slip road towards Adisham Road. Officers found the crashed car later in the night.

Paramedics, fire crews, police and an air ambulance attended the scene early this morning.

Officers from the Serious Collision Investigation Unit are appealing for any witnesses who may have seen the Toyota prior to or at the time of the collision, or who have dashcam footage to get in contact.

Witnesses should call the appeal line on 01622 798538 quoting 14-0130.
