AN EMOTIONAL vigil was held to remember a 19-year-old girl who died after a car collided with pedestrians in Trafford Park.

Sophie Louise Smith, from Radcliffe, was one of seven people taken to hospital after the incident at a car meet on Europa Way, on Thursday evening.

Miss Smith died in hospital the following day.

Friends and colleagues from a branch of Costa Coffee in Bolton where she worked, gathered at the site of the collision to pay their respects at around 7pm Sunday evening.

No words were spoken at the vigil, but those attending lit candles placed flowers, balloons and cards, and tied messages hand written on card hearts to bushes, near to the scene.

They also fastened a Costa Barista's shirt to a sign over looking the shrine, before hugging and taking a moment's silence.

Several cars stopped by the vigil for people to get out and lay bouquets of flowers.

The tributes joined dozens of others laid at the site in the days following the collision, alongside tea lights which lined the street forming the letters SLS — Miss Smiths initials.

Staff from the branch of Costa where Miss Smith worked said: "Sophie was an amazing girl so we decided to hold this vigil to show our respects.

"She was a friend to everyone and anytime you needed to speak to her she was there, always."
