Taiyah Pebbles, a 16-year-old girl has been found dead on train tracks.
Metro UK reports that the teenage girl was with friends near Herne Bay station, Kent, at around 11pm on Tuesday night but was found dead at 7am the next day.
Police say her death is ‘unexplained’ but that her injuries are believed to have been caused by electrocution.
Dozens of friends arrived with flowers at the station on Thursday afternoon and later held a vigil where they set of red balloons in Tiayah’s memory.
Paying tribute to her, friend Saskia Lang said heaven had ‘gained another beautiful angel’.
She added said: ‘R.I.P Taiyah Pebbles you will never be forgotten especially with the memories we’ve had.
‘I know we haven’t spoken in ages or seen each other in ages but I will never forget you and the memories we had together and the things we have done together.
‘Heaven has gained another beautiful angel but you was taken from us too soon, now it’s time to rest in peace with all the other beautiful and live your life up in heaven my thoughts go out to the family.’
Lauren Berwick said: ‘Rip Tai baby, sleep well you will never be forgotten.
‘My best friend I will forever miss you, you made me have so much confidence and always pushed me to succeed in most things.
‘Just can’t believe you’ve been taken from us so early in your life, you was such a big part in my life and it’s going to be so different with you not around and not waking up to your funny snapchats your send me.
‘Not a day will pass that I wouldn’t be thinking of you! You was always there for me when I needed to talk and you gave me the most caring advice a best friend could give, and I don’t think anything will be the same from now on.
Abacus Taxi controller Niona Partridge who works near the station said: ‘The first police turned up at about 7am and then there were more police, and more police and more police.
‘Then the ambulances arrived, followed by Network Rail.
‘A passenger on the other side of the platform was pointing down the tracks towards Thanet as if he was directing officers to something.’
A post-mortem is expected to take place on Friday and formal identification has yet to take place, but the family have been informed.
DCI Paul Langley from British Transport Police, said: ‘Our thoughts are with the family and friends of this young girl as they try to come to terms with this awful news.
‘We have deployed specially trained officers to the family to provide them with support.
‘If you were in the area or have any information, no matter how small, please do get in touch as soon as possible. Your information might prove vital in our enquiries.’
