Flowers and tributes left on bench where tragic Libby Squire was last seen alive

Heartbreaking floral tributes have been laid at the last known sighting of tragic student Libby Squire.

The 21-year-old was last seen at the top of Haworth Street, sitting on the bench close to the junction of Beverley Road and Beresford Avenue.

Flowers, candles and cards are beginning to grow in number at the spot on Friday morning where police say was her last sighting - at around 12.09am on February 1.

The tributes at the bench began mounting last night following the tragic news that Libby’s body had been found off the coast of Spurn Point on Wednesday afternoon.

One of the cards left at the scene this morning read: "God bless you all, your family and your student friends."

Four large bouquets of flowers had also been left overnight and more are being brought by the mourning Hull community as the morning progresses.

Libby, a philosophy student at Hull university, moved to Hull in September 2017 after falling in love with the city.

She disappeared in the early hours of Friday, February 1, after she was turned away from Welly nightclub and placed in a taxi to take her to her home in Wellesley Avenue.

However, Humberside Police believe she never entered the property. She was last seen on CCTV close to the bench between 11.45pm and 12.09am.

Tragically, police confirmed on Thursday, March 20, exactly seven weeks after Libby went missing, that a body recovered from the Humber Estuary was that of the student.
