A SCHOOLGIRL who is thought to have died after taking ecstasy was “a thoughtful, beautiful girl, who was much loved”, her mother has said.

Leah Heyes, 15, died after she collapsed in a car park in Northallerton, North Yorkshire, at about 9.30pm on Saturday.

On Tuesday, her mother Kerry Roberts said: “Leah was my best friend.

“She was a thoughtful, beautiful girl, who was much loved. She was fun, bubbly, and had a great sense of humour.

“I’m absolutely heartbroken to have lost my beautiful girl.

“No words can describe how much she will be missed and the enormous gap she has left in our lives.

“She will be truly missed more than words can say”
