Chesterfield is mourning the loss of much-loved Sarah Freckingham, who died suddenly this week.

The 14-year-old was found in the bedroom of her home on St Augustine's Road on Wednesday morning.

Yesterday, her heartbroken mother Sharon paid tribute to her 'happy, smiley, lovely' daughter - and broke down in tears as she said: "I just want her back."

An online fundraising page has now been set up to help her parents cover funeral costs.

Scores of tributes have been paid to Sarah, who was a pupil at Parkside Community School, on the Derbyshire Times' Facebook page. Here are some of them...

Alan Hardy: "RIP my sweet daughter Sarah. I know that I did not see you but daddy did love you very much. Sweet dreams."

Julie Hatt: "RIP Sarah. I can remember you from being little. You were always happy and always had a smile. My heart and thoughts are with your mum and the rest of your family and friends. Sleep tight."

Ian Pryor: "My daughter was good friends with Sarah and she will be missed so much. A wonderful child who was always polite and enjoyed life."

Julie Dale: "My deepest sympathy goes out to you all. To lose a child is the most painful heartache ever. I hope you get some answers. God bless."

Paige Rebecca Maddison: "Heaven has gained a new angle. You were a really good friend and I loved having you in my life. RIP Sarah. Fly high beautiful."
