Beautiful and funny girl, 12, dies days after being admitted to hospital

Tributes from heartbroken friends and family have been pouring in for a 12-year-old schoolgirl who died this weekend, four days after being admitted to hospital.

Semina Halliwell from Southport, Merseyside, lost her life on the morning of Saturday, June 12.

Her mum, Rachel Halliwell, says there is a "void in her heart that can never be filled".

Rachel told Liverpool Echo how her daughter was "so beautiful, and so funny. She loved singing and dancing.

"She had been asked by model agencies to work for them but she wasn't confident enough. She didn't see how beautiful she was."

Rachel went on: "She was loving and caring and loved her brothers Rafy and Jorge so much, and she was so loved by friends and family, far and wide.

"I am heartbroken beyond words. There is a void in my heart that can never be filled. I cannot believe I will never see that beautiful, gorgeous girl again till I leave this earth to heaven. Her pain is over now."

Rachel says Semina's dad Louis is currently in Cyprus, with Covid travel restrictions making his return to the UK more difficult.
