The heartbroken family of a young woman killed by a hit-and-run driver fleeing police have paid tribute to a 'wonderful daughter, sister and niece'. 

Anisha Vidal-Garner's devastated relatives said she had a 'constant sweet smile and happy nature' and had grown into a 'loving, caring and intelligent woman', in a note attached to flowers left at the scene.

Anisha died instantly after she was struck by a Mercedes Benz car travelling at over 70 miles per hour on Brixton Hill on Wednesday night.

Police had instructed the car to pull over but instead the driver continued at speed, knocking into Anisha at about 60-70mph and carrying on down the road without stopping.

Officers later recovered a black Mercedes-Benz C-Class nearby which had a damaged wing mirror.

Last night a bouquet of flowers were laid close to the bus stop where paramedics had tried to save Anisha's life.

A tenderly-written note said: 'I remember when you were first born so small and beautiful with your very tired mother.

'I remember your constant sweet smile and happy nature. I remember you being shy but strong, quiet but confident, beautiful but unaware.

'I remember watching you as you grew up to be a loving, caring and intelligent woman. I remember drinking a glass of wine with you and talking of your future hopes and dreams.

'I remember your loving family who adored you and you adored back.

'You were such a wonderful daughter, sister, niece and friend to so many. I know you will be desperately missed by all whose lives you have touched.

'Words escape me for my sorrow.'

The note is signed off with: 'Love as always, Dave, Charlotte, Albie and Freddie.'
