The family of Alisha have today released the following statement: “We are absolutely devastated by the death of our daughter Alisha and are struggling to come to terms with what has happened.

“Alisha was an intelligent, bubbly, popular girl who was much-loved by everyone in her family and all her friends.

“She had enjoyed her time at Abraham Guest High School and Saint John Rigby College and had just started at Liverpool Hope University where she was studying Marketing and Media which she hoped would lead to a career in that field.

“No-one can ever expect or prepare for losing a child at such a young age. It is every parent’s worst nightmare and we are utterly devastated. We are proud to have spent the time  with her.

“We are however comforted by all the love and messages of support we have received from family, friends and neighbours – they are truly appreciated and show just what a beloved and treasured person Alisha was to so many people.”

Dr Penny Haughan, Dean of Students at Liverpool Hope University, said: “Alisha was a well-liked and bright student, and was settling in well to the Liverpool Hope community.”

“We are deeply saddened to hear of her death. Our prayers are with Alisha’s family and friends. We are now doing everything that we can to offer support to Alisha’s fellow students at this time.”
