Tragedy as British teen jumps to her death in southern Spain

TRIBUTES have flooded in for a British teenager who fell to her death from a motorway bridge.

Hundreds of family and friends have expressed their sorrow for Samantha Hardy, 19, who jumped onto the N340.

The troubled teenager was allegedly killed by a passing car after landing on the dual carriageway in La Cala, in the early hours of the morning.

Thousands have since visited her Facebook page, as well as a specially set up memorial site at gonetoosoon.org.

Among countless tributes, the teenager from Bolton, is described as ‘boisterous, loving, caring and giving’.

Bouquets of flowers have been left beside the bridge, while mourners dressed in pink (her favourite colour) for her funeral at Fuengirola Crematorium. Pink balloons were also released.

One tribute read: “You were always so full of life, always up for fun; you were the life and soul of the party!! I still can’t believe you’re actually gone.”
