The family of a young woman who died after being hit by a car have paid tribute to her.

Jessica Quayle died after being struck by a Peugeot 206 at Mountbarrow Road, Ulverston, in Cumbria, shortly before 13:30 BST on Monday.

The 19-year-old, of Ainslie Street, Dalton, was described as "a beautiful, intelligent, fun-loving girl".

A 23-year-old man, from Ulverston, was arrested on suspicion of causing death by dangerous driving.

A family statement described Jessica as a "beloved daughter, sister, granddaughter" who "will be sadly missed".

It said: "You were so loved. A model student.

"Sweet dreams darling, we love you and you will always be in our hearts."

Cumbria Police said a second pedestrian, a 25-year-old woman also from Ulverston, was taken to the Royal Preston Hospital in a "life-threatening" condition and has since been moved to the Blackpool Victoria Hospital.
