Now scores of beautiful bouquets have been left on a footbridge that crosses the water along with messages and photographs of the youngster.

Tributes have also poured in on social media for the teenager, with one of her classmates describing Nicola as "always happy" and someone who "always did anything for anyone".

She added: "School's never going to be the same without you."

Another girl said: "Miss you so much my angel. Rest in paradise my gorgeous girl."
