Simran was a former pupil at Beechwood School in Long Readings Lane, Britwell where she is fondly remembered.

Headteacher Kathleen Higgins said: “We were deeply shocked and saddened to hear the tragic news about Simran and we send our heartfelt condolences to her family and friends.

“Simran was a wonderful young woman. During her time at Beechwood she was a very popular and highly regarded member of our school community which is testament to her truly lovely personality and character.”
