A mum-of-two who died after a crash in Climping on Thursday (February 4) has been described as a ‘ray of light’ by her fiancé.

Jake Pile has paid heartfelt tribute to 29-year-old Charlotte Hull, of Horsemere Green Lane in Climping.

She sustained fatal injuries when the silver Volkswagen she was driving left Yapton Road at about 5.35pm.

Mr Pile said: “Charlotte was a loving and loyal mother to our two brilliant boys, Harry, eight, and Joey, 10. She lived for them, her family, her friends and her two Chihuahuas, Tinkerbell and Pickles.

“I think her friends and family will remember her as a real ray of light. She touched so many people’s hearts and she will be greatly missed.

“After her mum passed away about a year-and-a-half ago she went on a health kick and was named member of the month at her local gym.

“She was on her way to the gym when the crash happened, which was typical of her commitment to health and fitness. She had already been twice that day, as she was signed up to all sorts of classes.

“She was my life for 12 years. We met when she was working at a pub in Felpham and we instantly hit it off. We soon fell in love, and she fell pregnant and we got our first place together a few months later.

“I’m totally devastated that she has gone. She was due to turn 30 in April and she had her whole life ahead of her. No words can describe the way we feel to have lost her.”
