‘Lovely Nell was our world’
THE family of a 14-yearold girl killed in the attack have paid an emotional tribute to the ‘top class’ schoolgirl.
Nell Jones, who was from Goostrey, near Jodrell Bank, was at the concert with friend, Freya Lewis, who was seriously injured in the blast.
Nell’s family said their ‘hearts have been shattered’ after the loss of Nell who was their ‘world’.
They said: “Our Nell was just lovely. She was top class, she was clever and she was fun. She would have a go at anything and just loved life. We can’t wrap our children in cotton wool. She was so excited to go to her first pop concert. She was singing in the car, all the way there.
“Even though she has been taken from us we’ve had 14 lovely years with her and that makes us so happy. They were the best years.
“We were so lucky to have her. Our hearts have been shattered. We loved Nell so very much, she was our world.”
Nell attended Holmes Chapel Comprehensive.
