Tributes have been flooding in for a young motorcyclist who lost her life in a crash during a police chase on the M25. The incident, which happened at the Mardyke Junction on Sunday (April 14), led to the arrest of two men on suspicion of causing death by dangerous driving.

The emergency services rushed to the motorway shortly before midnight but despite their efforts, the motorcyclist died at the scene.

As reported by EssexLive, she has been named locally as Andrina Everett, a beloved figure within the biking community. Two 18-year-old men from Essex are currently being held by police.

It has been reported that the vehicle involved was being pursued by Kent Police just before the tragic accident.

In a heart-wrenching tribute, Andrina's partner William said: "I love this girl. She was the best thing ever to happen to me and always made me smile. Waking up to her every morning was like I was in heaven and waking up this morning after crying myself to sleep with just a cold bed and no one, just the indent of where her head used to lay.

"God this is hard to accept that my girl has gone forever and I never got to say goodbye. I miss her so much and all I want is her back in my arms where she belonged. Life is too unfair and I hate it with a passion but I'm happy I got to meet her and be with my soulmate for the very little amount of time we had together. Baby I miss you so much and I'll see you in heaven soon where I can finally hug you again."

One local biker, known as Val, told EssexLive : "As a group, we would always be there for each other and that was how Andrina was. She was a really special person who had a clear love and expression for motorbikes. From my conversations with her, she said her dad was the main reason for that."

The Independent Office for Police Conduct (IOPC) has launched an independent investigation into the police pursuit, following a mandatory referral by Kent Police.
