THE family of a Center Parcs worker who was killed when she was hit by an electric vehicle driven by another member of staff have told of their pain.
Penny Bulpitt, aged 67, from Luton, was on a pedal bike when she was involved in a collision with an electric all-terrain vehicle at 12.10pm on Friday at Center Parcs Woburn Forest.
Emergency services attended and she was taken to hospital, where she died the following day.
Paying tribute to her, her family said ‘she was loved by everyone who knew her’.
It comes after Penny’s sister-in-law Anna Northwood also paid moving tribute.
She told The Sun: “She was a fantastic mum and grandmother. We’ll certainly miss her.”
Cars are banned from the resort’s roads, apart from going to and from accommodation car parks on Mondays and Fridays.
Officers are appealing for witnesses as they continue their investigation into the incident.
Detective Sergeant Craig Wheeler, from the Bedfordshire, Cambridgeshire and Hertfordshire Serious Collision Investigation Unit, said: “This was a tragic incident, and our thoughts remain with the family and loved ones of the victim.
“Both people involved in the incident were staff at the site, and we are working with Center Parcs directly.
