"Heartbreakingly, she was involved in a fatal accident in Chelsea and passed away at the scene.

"Livi was the brightest light in the lives of everyone who knew her, a ray of positivity which beamed wherever she went.

"Her legacy lives on in the hearts of her adoring family and friends, whom she touched with her unfaltering spirit and kindness."
