Kay Palmer's family have paid tribute to the 16-year-old who passed away on Saturday

The family of Kayleigh-Anne Palmer, who died over the weekend, has paid tribute to the 16-year-old who they say “won’t ever get the chance to hold her baby”.

In a heartfelt statement, the Cleeve School pupil’s family said the teenager was “beautiful inside and out” with a personality that “lit up every room she entered”.

The 16-year-old, who was known affectionately as Kay, tragically lost her three day fight for life on Saturday, after being put in an induced coma following an attack in Whaddon on Wednesday.

Her 18-year-old boyfriend, Aston Robinson, appeared in court charged with attempted murder last Friday.

But Gloucestershire Police said today that officers were reviewing whether any further charges should be brought against him following the death of Kayleigh-Anne and her unborn child.

Kaleigh-Anne’s father, Dean Palmer called Kay his “beautiful daughter”.

He said: “She was great company and had a great sense of humour.

“I was the first to hold her and I’m devastated she won’t ever get the chance to hold her baby.”

Her mother, Helen Bage, said the 16-year-old was her “whole world”.

She said: “We had a strong relationship filled with love and laughter. Our bond was so strong we were best friends.

“Kay was so beautiful inside and out. She was very loving towards family and friends and always remained loyal to us all.

“You always knew when Kay was around because she had the most wicked sense of humour and always made people laugh. Her personality lit up every room she entered.”

The teenager’s grandparents, Michael and Carole Bage, said they were privileged to have been a part of her life.

“We gave her our unconditional love and in return she gave us so much more,” they said.

“Both she and her friends filled our home for many years with fun and laughter but sadly this can be no longer.

"Thankfully, nothing is more precious than all the memories we hold dear of our beautiful Kay who was so very special to us.

"We loved you so much Kay and you will always be in our hearts - Nan and Grampa”
