THE family of an 11-year-old girl who died in a road collision have paid tribute to their ‘beautiful daughter’. Marianne Haboc died following the collision on Taylor Street in Rochdale on Monday.
Despite the efforts of the emergency services, she was pronounced dead at the scene. The driver of the red Range Rover involved in the collision stopped at the scene.

Marianne, who was a member of the Rochdale Olympic Gymnastics club, was in her final year at St Patrick’s Primary School.
In their tribute, her family said the youngster used to get to school early to make friends with younger pupils.
The tribute said: “Marianne, our beautiful daughter, was a natural born leader that could motivate friends to unite and do the same together regardless of age, race or belief.
“It was her own goal to be a top pupil of the year before leaving primary school.”
