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.
“We now ask the media to respect our wishes and privacy as we attempt to come to terms with this tragic accident and the loss of our darling girl.”
A 22-year-old man has been arrested in connection with the collision and has been bailed until December 7.
