The parents of a young woman killed in Harlow have paid tribute to their "wonderful and loving daughter".
Tragic Estyna, who was due to give birth to a baby girl within the next few days, was found seriously injured on the side of the road near the junction between Howard Way and The Stow at 3am on Wednesday, June 28.
The 20-year-old was rushed to Princess Alexandra Hospital by ambulance, but doctors were unable to save her or her unborn daughter.
Paying tribute to their daughter, her parents Kevin and Susan Blunnie said: "Eystna was a wonderful and loving daughter who was looking forward to the birth of her first child. Sadly this will no longer be.
"We hope that everyone will understand the sadness in our hearts and let us mourn the passing of our loved ones. We would also like to thank everyone for their support to our family at this very sad time."
