Suffolk Police have released a tribute from the family of Fiona Anderson following her death in Lowestoft on Monday.
Fiona was a beautiful, intelligent girl and a loving and caring person, but she had suffered from mental illness since she was young and we believe she was driven to her actions yesterday.
This was not our Fiona - she was not herself.
She cared passionately about others but often brought stress on herself by caring too much.
She was gentle but ended up under too much pressure.
As a family we were close but she would often push us away, keen to do her own thing and not to listen when we offered support.
Life was sometimes overwhelming for her.
She was really popular but just didn't believe she was and had forgotten there were people there that could help her.
We wish more had been done to recognise her mental health problems, which could be masked by her intelligence and creativity.
She would often make costumes for the children, who she loved very much.
