TRIBUTES have flooded in after a mother of five was killed in a hit-and-run, as police officially named the 39-year-old.

Iram Shahzadi, suffered fatal injuries after being struck by a grey Citroen C1 at the junction of Hinchcliffe Street and Beech Terrace at around 3pm on Monday (May 10).

She had been making the short journey over to Lapage Primary School, on Barkerend Road, to collect one of her daughters when the incident happened.

It is believed she ended up on the grass next to the nearby greenway after the impact from the car.

She was pronounced deceased at the scene.

The mother of five children - who are aged between seven and 18 - was named locally on Tuesday night.

West Yorkshire Police then officially confirmed the victim's identity on Wednesday.

Detectives are continuing to question a 41-year-old man arrested on suspicion of murder and causing death by dangerous driving in connection with the incident.

The Telegraph & Argus set-up a Book of Condolence on Tuesday, for people to pay tribute to Mrs Shahzadi.

Immy Farid, Mrs Shahzadi's brother-in-law, said his wife was "gasping for air" when she found out the news.

His tribute said: "Inna lillahi wa inna ilayhi raji’un.

"So, so sad you have left this way, you didn't deserve this.

"Words cannot explain how devastated we are, when your sister got the call she was gasping for air.

"I wished that it's all a lie, that you some how will pull through, but Allah wanted you to leave this world and give you a home in paradise.

"How lucky you left in the month of Ramadan, may Allah grant you highest place in paradise.

"Ameen, you will forever remain in our hearts and prayers, still can't believe this, you have gone, a hole is in her heart which I will always try my best to comfort her until we see you again."

An anonymous contributor described Mrs Shahzadi as a "kind-hearted, good-natured" person and that her family and husband are "utterly heartbroken".

The tribute said: "It was Allah's will to take you away on the 27th Roza.

"My sis-in-law had just completed her Quran on the day of her death.

"You will always be loved and missed.

"And I will always remember you for the kind-hearted, good-natured person you was.

"Leaving behind your children and husband and a family who are utterly heartbroken, but knowing you are at peace is what is keeping us going.

"Allah ni marzi (it was God's will) to take you away at such a young age and so suddenly.

"I will forever miss you my beautiful sister-in-law, take care and rest in peace.

"We will meet again in sha Allah."

One person, who only named themselves as W, said Mrs Shahzadi had supported them "through bad times" and that they will "miss her loads".

A contributor named Ikra said: "Only met her a few times but received nothing but love from her, she had an amazing, calming and caring energy that I will never forget."

Police are continuing to appeal for witnesses.
