FLOWERS surround a roundabout in Leigh where a young woman was tragically killed while riding her scooter 10 days ago.

Charlotte Fox, 23, was pronounced dead at the scene after her vehicle was in collision with a light goods vehicle shortly before 8am on December 21.

The incident occurred on the roundabout on Atherleigh Way in Leigh which is now awash with tributes left by friends and family.

One card reads: “Goodnight, God Bless. RIP Charlie. Lisa xxx”

Charlotte had worked at Superdrug for a number of years and had recently graduated from the company’s management scheme, of which her family say she was very proud.

An emotional tribute left at the scene from her colleagues said: “Charlotte, an angel in life but you’re gone. Always in our thoughts.”

The company also released an official statement saying: “The team at Superdrug are all deeply shocked by this tragic fatality.

“Our thoughts go out to family, friends and colleagues at this difficult time.”

The family paid tribute to their beloved daughter, auntie and sister last week, describing her love of Karate, roller skating and motorcycling.

They said: “Charlotte was a much loved daughter, granddaughter, sister and auntie.

“She had recently started work as an assistant manager for Superdrug having recently graduated from the Superdrug management scheme, of which she was very proud.

“Charlotte enjoyed karate and was a black belt 2nd Dan. She also instructed juniors at her club. She enjoyed roller skating with her father and motorcycling.”

A 52-year-old man, who was arrested on suspicion of causing death by careless driving, has since been bailed until February pending further enquiries.
