THE family of a Ramsey teenager who died after a car crash have paid tribute to “our beautiful Natalie”.
Natalie Scotchford, 19, of Blenheim Road, was a passenger in a van which plunged into the River Nene after leaving St Mary’s Road, Ramsey, at about 4am on Saturday (July 6).
Her family said: “Words cannot begin to convey how devastated we are at the loss of our beautiful Natalie. She was a popular, caring and loving young woman who loved her friends, her family and having fun. She’d just become a doting auntie and was doing a magnificent job supporting her sister looking after her little nephew.
“We would like to thank all those who have sent kind words, flowers and messages of support - Natalie was so loved and these are a source of strength for us all.
“We are an exceptionally close family and we will remain united - as we have always been - to support each other through the difficult times ahead.
