Megan’s family has issued the following tribute.

 “Megan Pollitt, fondly known as Meg to family and friends, sadly passed away at the University Hospital of Wales, Cardiff on Monday 16th November.

“Meg dedicated her time to everyone around her and was always there for others.  She had recently started studying law in Cardiff and was full of dreams and aspirations.

“Having moved away Meg still enjoyed close contact with family and friends, sharing stories and laughter through visits and calls.

“We will miss her beautiful bright smile and positive energy that would lift the spirits of anyone.

“Meg loved the outdoor space, particularly hiking with her Dad and her dog. She had recently climbed Snowdon and reached the summit.

“Meg also loved reading the classics, watching Anime and listening to music as well as supporting the Wasps rugby team.

“Meg will be missed and forever loved by her Mum and Dad, sister, grandparents and friends.”  

Meg’s family would appreciate their privacy at this time to process what has happened and grieve for their daughter.
