‘I will cherish the memories we made especially on the hen weekend! But also the memories in between!’ 

Ms Reed’s friend Gemma said: ‘Kay, you had the ability to instantly put people at ease. From the moment we met, your positive bubbly personality just radiated and it was an absolute pleasure being around you.

‘I cannot believe how our weekend with so many amazing memories ended the way it did and I’m just so sorry. I am struggling to process what happened and life just seems so unfair but I know you will be reunited with your family in heaven.’ 

According to the Liverpool Echo, coroner Anita Bhardwaj said: ‘It’s more likely than not the alcohol consumed has rendered Kay unconcious. Kay has vomited and inhaled gastric acid into her upper airway, resulting in her death.   

‘It’s something that a lot of people do, going out drinking. It’s not something that is unusual and she was clearly very unfortunate as to the results of what happened. I think this just demonstrates how dangerous alcohol can be.’
