The family of a woman who died in a collision with a petrol tanker near Addenbrooke’s Hospital paid tribute to a “truly special individual”.
Anna Garratt-Quinton, 22, of King Alfred Way, Denham, near Bedford, was cycling at just before 8am on Thursday when she was struck by a petrol tanker.
The collision happened at the junction of the A1307 with Fendon Road - near to Addenbrooke's Hospital, which was her place of work.
Today, Anna’s family released the following statement:
“Our dear Anna, taken from us too soon, a waste of a truly special individual.
“The kindest soul, gentle and caring to the core. Her giggles, smile and sarcastic wit would light up a room.
"She was dedicated and hardworking, would never take a day off, but if she did you could be sure to find her in her pink spotty dressing gown.
