Officers were pursuing a Range Rover when the crash happened at around 11.40pm on April 14.

Paramedics attended along with Essex Police, however, Andrina, from Medway, died at the scene.

Following the incident, a fundraising page was set up to help cover the cost of her funeral, raising more than £15,000.

Today (May 21), a motorbike hearse with a glass sidecar and three cyclists completed two laps of the Brands Hatch Race Circuit, in West Kingsdown.

Her grandmother Sue Hocking told KentOnline it was to honour Andrina as she had always wanted to do it.

A convoy of motorbikes, along with friends and family, arrived at the race track earlier this morning before heading to Thames View Crematorium, in Gravesend.

In a statement her fiancée William Critchell previously described Andrina as “the most loving person”.

He added: “She loved riding her motorbike everywhere and could not go one night without riding around enjoying the freedom she had.

“Our beautiful girl was taken too soon at 19 years old and we are all devastated by her loss.

“She was the most loving person to all her family and friends and would do anything she could to put a smile on their faces.”

An investigation was launched by the Independent Office for Police Conduct (IOPC) shortly after the incident at junction 30 of the M25.

IOPC regional director Mel Palmer said: “This is a tragic incident and our thoughts are with all of those affected, including the family and friends of Andrina Everett.

“As the car involved in the fatal collision was being pursued by officers, it is important that an independent investigation is carried out into the circumstances of the pursuit and the actions and decision-making of the officers involved.
