Relatives of a schoolgirl, who was killed in a car crash in Greater Manchester, say she was a "little bundle of joy."
Olivia Edohasim, 9, died when the car she was travelling in hit a brick wall in Altrincham, a fortnight ago. Two other people, a 45-year-old man and an 11-year-old girl, were badly hurt. They are believed to be related to Olivia.
The youngster's family say she was their "star daughter, sister, granddaughter and god daughter."
She brought smiles to all faces at all times. She was exceptional at school and left a blaze of success in all that she engaged in and was never afraid to step out of her comfort zone. She grew up and was nurtured in her family's traditional Christian beliefs. She will be greatly missed by all of us but will remain in our thoughts and hearts forever.

Greater Manchester Police have sent out an urgent warning about the potentially dangerous 'legal high' known as 'Annihilation'.
Police were called to Rochdale in Manchester today after reports that a 33-year-old man had collapsed. Friends of the man told officers that he had been taking legal highs.
He is currently in hospital in an induced coma.
Later today, a 39-year-old man in the same area also collapsed, receiving medical attention at the scene before leaving.
Police have urged people to recognise the symptoms 'Annihilation' can cause, which include profuse sweating, racing heartbeat, extreme muscle tension, delirious ranting and very high body temperature.
If any person shows signs of these symptoms, police say it is essential to call 999, put the person in the recovery position and seek medical assistance.
They are also urging anyone with information about where the drug may have come from to contact them on 101 or call Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
“Today, two men have fallen ill after taking the ‘legal high’ known as ‘Annihilation’. The use of ‘legal highs’ is a worrying trend and has ended with a man in hospital in intensive care.
“I want to remind people about the potentially life threatening consequences of ‘legal highs’ – they may not be illegal but they definitely are not safe.
“I would urge people not to buy these so-called ‘legal highs’ and to consider the threat they pose to lives.
“If family or friends find any legal highs please dispose responsibly or hand in to police.”

New photographs of the damage caused by a fire inside 16th century manor Wythenshawe Hall have been released by Manchester City Council.
Over 50 firefighters were called out to tackle the blaze that ravaged the Tudor mansion in March.
The roof and most of the timber structure were destroyed in the fire.
The manor was once besieged by Oliver Cromwell's parliamentarian soldiers during the English Civil War.
Work to restore the building is ongoing.
“A huge amount of work has already gone into helping protect Wythenshawe Hall, most visibly the scaffold cocoon that is helping to stabilise the damaged areas of the property and will support the new temporary roofing.
“Inside, countless hours have been spent making sure anything that can be saved is saved. Everything from the largest pieces of furniture that were on display in the building, to the smallest artefacts being unearthed by highly-trained archaeologists.
“It will be a long road to recovery for the building, but working with our partners and the friends’ group, we will see Wythenshawe Hall back to its best.”
