'You were truly amazing.' Emotional tributes to mum of three killed in hit-and-run at Wigan bar
Heartfelt messages and floral tributes have been left at a Wigan bar where a mum of three was fatally injured in a hit-and-run.
Bouquets of flowers and moving messages are on display in the window at Fifteens, on Ormskirk Road in Pemberton, after the incident on Friday night.
A woman in her 40s, who has not yet been named by the police, died after being hit by a car which mounted the pavement outside the bar.
One of the messages read: “RIP sweetheart. Thinking of you and all your family and friends. No-one deserves to go out for a night out and not go home. Heartbroken.”
Another said: “Rest in peace beautiful. Thinking of you and all your family. Taken far too soon. Lots of love, sleep tight.”
One hand-written message simply said: “You were truly amazing. We will miss you.”
The front of Fifteens has been boarded up due to the damage caused by the incident.
Two men were also badly injured in the incident, which police are continuing to investigate.
Jacob Gaskell, 19, of Marlborough Avenue, Ince, was due to appear in court today charged with causing death by dangerous driving, driving while disqualified, driving while unlicensed/uninsured, causing serious injury by dangerous driving, driving while disqualified and failing to stop.
A second male who was arrested has been released under investigation.
