The family of a girl who died on Monday in Rochdale after being hit by a car have paid tribute to her.

11-year-old Marianne Haboc – was sadly pronounced dead at the scene on Taylor Street after being hit by a red Range Rover,despite the best efforts of the emergency services.

Paying tribute to her, her parents said: “Marianne, our beautiful daughter, was a natural born leader that could motivate friends to unite and do the same together regardless of age, race or belief.

“It was her own goal to be a top pupil of the year before leaving primary school. To achieve this, she had a little plan by coming to school early so she could meet more young pupils to play with and to improve her pro-activeness and relationship to them and her teacher.

“She loved her gymnastics and we are incredibly proud of what she achieved in that sport.

“She was a devoted Catholic and enjoyed gospel reading.

“Marianne will be sadly missed by all that knew her at her school, gymnastic club and church.”
