The mother of tragic Sheffield teenager Caroline Everest has issued a statement after a coroner today ruled her daughter's death was accidental.
Caroline's mum Val said: "Carrie was a warm, friendly and energetic young lady.
"Unfortunately her life was ended far too soon.
"She had so many plans for the future - her course at Hallam University and her love of dancing at City Limits.
"It is sad that a night out with friends should end so tragically. A series of unfortunate events.
"Carrie is constantly in our thoughts and is missed by everyone. It was an absolute joy and pleasure to have had her in our lives and we will never ever forget her bewitching smile."
