Mother of Lucy McHugh pays tribute in first TV interview

The mother of murdered Southampton teenager, Lucy McHugh, has spoken on camera for the first time since her daughter's death.

Stacey White has paid tribute to her 'unique' daughter who was 'always full of smiles'.

She says that Lucy had a strong ambition to pursue law, one day hoping to move to America to work pro bono for those who cannot afford a lawyer.

The last confirmed sighting of Lucy was at the Tesco Express on the corner of Coxford Road and Lordswood Road at 9.30am Wednesday 25th July.

Her body was found in woodland at the Sports Centre at 7.45am on Thursday 26th July.

Stacey White says she will continue to 'fight' for Lucy's memory.

On Saturday, Lucy's family will be holding a fundraising event in her name, raising money to fund community projects in the area.

Detectives investigating her murder are asking for her friends to come forward with any information which may help them.
