Tributes have been paid by family and friends to a former beauty queen who has died aged 35.

Jade Leigh Hunt, was described as ‘the purest of souls’ by her family who have set up a JustGiving page following her death on Saturday.

A message on the page reads: ‘On Saturday 30th March 2024 our family was shattered with the heartbreaking news of Jade’s sudden passing.

‘Jade had the purest of souls, she loved deeply and was loved immeasurably.

‘Her infectious laugh and big beautiful smile that would light up any room, a beautiful, beautiful girl.

‘Jade left an imprint on everyone’s hearts the moment she would walk in to their life. Jade was full of fun, laughter, courage, mischief, with a great and witty sense of humour and always up for doing something adventurous.

‘As a family we thought it would be special to create this platform to allow Jade’s friends, family and anyone who has had the privilege of crossing paths with Jade to share your memories and love for Jade.

‘This will give us great comfort knowing even more so, how loved she was. If you feel you would like to leave a donation, please feel free, we will be very grateful.
