Family pay tribute to 18-year-old who died at West Allerton 
 
The family of an 18-year-old girl, who died at West Allerton on Tuesday, has paid tribute to her. 
 
Zoe Tynan, from Mossley Hill, died at West Allerton station on Tuesday, 30 August. 
 
In a statement released today through British Transport Police (BTP), Zoe’s family said: 
“Zoe was the most loving and caring daughter and sister anyone could wish for. She was a vibrant, generous and fun-loving girl who always knew how to cheer anyone up, and was a loyal, straight-talking friend to many. She was a dedicated athlete, never happier than when she had a ball at her feet and was the ultimate team player. She touched so many people's lives and will never be forgotten.” 
 
The family has now asked for privacy and will not be issuing any further statements or speaking publicly. The media are requested to allow them to grieve privately.
