A 16-YEAR-OLD girl was today remembered for her “heart of gold” after she was hit and killed by a train.

Jasmine Morris tragically died when she was struck by the Southeastern train early on Wednesday morning.

And friends have today paid tribute to the teen girl after the tragedy unfolded at Swanley station in Kent at about 6am yesterday.

Skye Harris, 16, was Jasmine’s best friend and was among the group of devastated pals laying floral tributes and playing music outside the station. 

She told Sun Online: “She had a heart of gold, she was the nicest and most naturally pretty girl I’ve ever seen. 

“She was perfect.”

“She loved baking, she was amazing at baking cakes, she loved drawing.”

One friend wrote: “Rest in peace to the most loveliest and most stunning girl I ever met.

“Jasmine you truly had a heart of gold and I can’t believe what’s happened.”

Another wrote: “Rest In Peace Jasmine Morris .. you was an amazing girl, inside and out.

“Always so kind throughout primary, and all of secondary. We all love you and miss you.”

A third added: “Words can’t describe how broken I am.

“One of the nicest girls you would of ever met.

“I can’t get over it Jas, we will all miss you lots and will always love you. Fly high gorgeous. We will meet again another day.”

Southeastern confirmed yesterday morning that the lines had been shut for two hours after reports a person had been hit by a train between St Mary Cray and Sole Street.

A British Transport Police spokesman said officers had been called after reports of a casualty on the tracks.

They said: “Paramedics also attended, however sadly a person was pronounced dead at the scene.

“The incident is not being treated as suspicious and a file will be prepared for the coroner.”
