Emotional tributes to woman who died in tanning shop
8:30am Sunday 9th September 2012 in Your Town
FRIENDS and family of the 26-year-old woman who died in a sun bed shop have paid tribute to her.
Jenna Vickers, aged 26, collapsed in TanTastic in Bury Road, Breightmet , on Monday and shop manager Lisa Rourke broke into the cubicle, but was unable to save her.
Friends have now set up a group on the social networking website, Facebook, to pay tribute to Miss Vickers.
Her mother, Shirley Mather, posted on the group: “Just cannot believe you have gone,you were the best daughter, best friend, we had a great mother and daughter relationship any one would wish for, you are going to be so very sadly missed, I cannot put into words how heartbroken I am sleep tight the angels are looking after you now, see you again one day and we will have a catch up, love you from the bottom of my heart bye for now my love.”
Tracy Haughton added: “Jenna, it’s hard to grasp the fact that you are now upstairs with all the other angels, it doesn’t seem that long ago since we were sat at the kitchen table with you doing my nails.”
Rebecca Mckeown said: “What can I say, we were best friends when we first started secondary school then we drifted apart and then we started chatting regularly on Facebook. You were such a lovely person, a kind soul.”
A post-mortem examination has taken place and the cause of death is unascertained.
An inquest will now be held to determine the cause of death.
On August 17, an entry on Miss Vickers’ social networking Twitter page indicated she had been using tanning injections.
Tanning injections are banned from sale in the UK, but can be bought online.
It is not suggested Tantastic was involved in supplying the injections or that the injections contributed to her death.
