The family of Gainsborough terror attack victim Carly Lovett have this evening paid tribute to their ‘beautiful shining light’.

Carly, 24, was among the first victims to be named following the hotel bloodbath at the beach resort of El Kantaoui, north of Sousse.

The statement says: “Carly’s parents, Joanne and Kev, fiancé Liam, sister Jordan, brother Daniel, stepfather John, stepmother Tracey, and step brothers Simon and Max, would like to thank everyone for their kind words of support at this very difficult time.

“Carly was and always will be our beautiful shining light; she was funny, clever, artistic and radiated love and happiness around her.

“Carly recently got engaged to Liam, her childhood sweetheart of 10 years. Both were excited and looking forward to a bright future together filled with love and happiness. This has now been cruelly taken away.

“To move forward through this we will try to do what we believe Carly would want and that is to love, cherish and support each other.

“The support received from family, friends and people we don’t know has been overwhelming and has been a great comfort to us all.

“Carly, may you soar with the angels and we pray with all our hearts that this evil, and such disregard for human life, will end so no other family will feel the pain that we do today and always will.”
