Isabelle Boshell was remembered by her family as the ‘best daughter anyone could ever have’

In a moving tribute, the girl’s devastated family said: ‘Isabelle was a loving daughter, granddaughter, great granddaughter and sister.

‘She was loved by her friends, family and adored by her dog and cat whom she loved.

‘She meant a lot to everyone and lived life to the full; she loved art, dancing, singing and learning.

‘She was learning to play the guitar and was a unique individual who loved to set her own trends.

‘The best daughter anyone could ever have. Please respect our family at this sad time and allow us the privacy to grieve.’

West Midlands Police said the driver will be spoken to in due course and have appealed for any witnesses or anyone with dash-cam footage to come forward.

‘To see the loss of someone so young is difficult for us as officers, but we know the pain is even greater for Isabelle’s family.

‘We’ll be doing all we can to support them while they grieve, while also trying to establish what happened leading to the collision.

‘We need your help so we can give answers to Isabelle’s family.’
