‘Lovely Nell was our world’

Macclesfield Express - - POP CONCERT TERROR ATTACK -

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.
