Principal pays tribute to teenager killed in West Lexham collision

The family of a teenager killed in a collision in West Lexham on Friday 8 July have released a photograph of her while the principle of the academy she attended has paid tribute to her.

Staff and students at King Edward VII Academy would like to express their deepest sadness and sympathies on hearing confirmation that Aylisha Cain was tragically lost to us last Friday, 8 July.

Aylisha was a very intelligent, warm and generous person. She came to us from Litcham School having done incredibly well in her GCSEs. She was studying maths, biology, physics and Spanish with a view to studying medicine at the UEA in future. She constantly strived to do the very best she could and was committed to being involved in a wide range of activities. She would no doubt have gone on to do many more great things and those who knew her well will hold her close in their memories.

For now, our thoughts remain with her family and particularly with her mother who was also injured.
