THE family of a woman who died after a collision in Bradford city centre has paid tribute to her - describing her as the "most incredible" person. 

Pedestrian Ayesha Hussain, 21, from Bradford, was involved in the collision on Hamm Strasse, near the junction of Manningham Lane, shortly before 4.40pm last Saturday. 

Police said a blue BMW 320D M Sport was in collision with Ayesha. 

She was taken to hospital where she sadly later died.  

In a statement, her sister said: "Our heartfelt thanks go out to the public members, emergency services and doctors for their efforts in trying to save our precious baby sister.  
"Our hearts are broken, Ayesha - we are devastated by your unexpected departure.

"You were taken from us in the most heartbreaking manner - we pray Allah never causes anyone to experience such pain.  
"Your loss has left us with a deep wound in our hearts - we are uncertain on how we will continue.

"You were the youngest, purest and most incredible person in our lives.   
"Ayesha, your absence has left a void in our hearts, which nothing in this world can replace.   
"We are thankful to Allah for the 21 years we spent with you.

"We all feel numb that you were taken from us so young and yet we must learn to be grateful that you came along.   
"Our life will be incomplete without you, Ayesha, and you will forever be missed. 
"We would like to end by thanking Allah for bestowing his mercy on us during this difficult time.   
"To Allah we belong, and to him is our return."

Many others have also paid tribute to Ayesha. 

Rohil Usmaan wrote in the T&A's Book of Condolence and said: "What an amazing soul she was, worked with her for three months and feels like I've worked with her for years.

"Always smiling every day, had a bubbly character, there for all work colleagues, will be missed by everyone and the workplace won't be the same without her."

Another tribute, from Andrea, said: "You shone like a bright star and made work such a pleasure, with your funny and witty nature.  

"I didn't know you too long but I sure will miss you."

The driver of the BMW, a man aged 24, was arrested on suspicion of causing death by dangerous driving and has since been bailed pending further enquiries. 

Anyone who can help police with their investigations should call police on 101, referencing log 1139 of November 4.
