Heartfelt tributes have been paid to a Gainborough woman who died in the Tunisia terror attack.

Carly Lovett, 24, from Gainsborough, was among the first victims to be named following the hotel bloodbath at the beach resort of El Kantaoui, north of Sousse.

Miss Lovett was a former student at the University of Lincoln, and the School of Film and Media tweeted: “Saddened to hear news reports of Carly Lovett in Tunisia - Graduate of our University 2013.”

Gainsborough MP Sir Edward Leigh said: “It is with shock and sorrow that I have learnt of the death of my constituent Miss Carly Lovett, a resident of Gainsborough, who has been killed in Tunisia by gunmen who have terrorised the resort of Sousse.”

“I can only offer my condolences to her family, friends and fiancé. Words will never adequately provide comfort for those who must face a very different future to the one that they imagined.”

“As the local Member of Parliament I will work with colleagues in the government to ensure that those who perpetrated this horrific act are brought to justice.”
