Family of Gateshead woman pay tribute at Arena inquiry

The family of 19-year-old Courtney Boyle, from Gateshead, have been paying tribute to her at the Manchester Arena Inquiry.

Courtney and her mother's partner Philip Tron, 32, were killed in the Manchester Arena attack on 22 May.

The pair had travelled from the North East to pick up her sister after the Ariana Grande concert.

Twenty-two people died when a bomb was detonated as people left the arena.

Courtney's mum Deborah Hutchinson has been reading her statement in court. She said: "She had become a gorgeous woman with a caring nature to match.

"It was the happiest I had seen my Courtney and she was loving life as a student."

Courtney was studying at Leeds Beckett University.

Deborah was in Manchester with Courtney the night she died.
