Tributes have been paid to a rough sleeper who died in Exeter when a tree fell on a tent she was in during the recent storms and floods.
Tributes have been left on Facebook to 21 year old Michelle Conroy, 21.
RIP babygal I will never ever forget you. You will always be the first gal I ever loved and you will always be in my heart but it should never have happened to you.
You were too young we still had a whole life to live together. And thanks to all my friends for the support and I'm sorry to all Michelle's family and friends. It was a tragic accident xxxx.
The Rev Canon Anna Norman-Walker, a Diocesan Missioner at Exeter Cathedral, said Ms Conroy was a regular visitor to the Friday Night Cafe at St Petcock's Church. She told the Express and Echo:
Unlike many of our visitors, Michelle wasn't dependant on drugs or alcohol, neither did she have any significant mental health issues, but rather she was a young person who was a lonely soul with a sad, broken childhood who simply couldn't sustain an independent life.
The street community were her family, friends and support network. We are all terribly sad to have lost her from our 'Friday family'.
Ms Conroy's family live away from Devon and are due to travel to Exeter on Friday to formally identify her
