Tributes are being paid to a 12 year old girl who died after being hit by a van in Lancashire.
Charlotte Edwards, known as Lottie, died from her injuries after the crash in the village of Ellel on Friday afternoon.
She was a year seven pupil at Lancaster Girls' Grammar School.
In a tribute, Lottie's family said she was a "wonderful daughter and sister who touched the hearts of everyone she met".
Bay Horse Road was closed for around eight hours for investigative work to be carried out.
Police would like to hear from anybody who saw all or part of the incident, which happened at around 4.05pm on Friday.
Sgt Oliver Jones, of Lancashire Police, said: “First and foremost our thoughts are with Lottie’s family and friends at this indescribably difficult time.
“Our focus is now on establishing the exact circumstances of the collision and we are urging anybody who saw the incident to get in touch with us straight away.”
A Family Liaison Officer has been appointed to support Lottie’s family.
