The Vauxhall Astra, that she was a passenger in, left the southbound carriageway of the M32 and entered undergrowth.

Tenisha’s family have since released the following tribute to their “beautiful young girl”.

It read: “We have been absolutely devastated by the loss of our beloved Tenisha. Our hearts have truly been broken beyond repair.

“We cannot believe that such a beautiful young girl, who had the rest of her life ahead of her, has been taken from us so soon.

“The whole family are still struggling to process this tragedy and we are hugely heartbroken for Tenisha’s two-year-old son that she now leaves behind, whom she doted on so very dearly. He will now grow up with very few memories of his loving mother and an empty space that nobody can ever fill.
