POLICE have confirm the motorcyclist who died in a fatal collision on a Thurrock junction of the M25on Sunday (14 April) was 19-year-old bride-to-be Andrina Everett.

Andrina, from Kent, was killed after her bike was in collision with a car, reportedly stolen and earlier involved in a police pursuit. It happened at the Mardyke Junction, junction 30 on the M25 and A13, at about 11.40pm.

Her death was followed by an emotional online message from her fiancé and a fundraising page has already raised more than £10,000 to pay for her funeral.

An Essex police statement says: "Our investigation into the collision is ongoing and we continue to appeal for any information that will assist with our enquiries.

"The collision involved a car and motorcycle. Paramedics were called to the scene but sadly, despite their best efforts, Andrina died at the scene.

"Two men, both aged 18 and from Essex, who were arrested on suspicion of causing death by dangerous driving, have been released on bail until 8 July.

"Part of the roundabout was closed for several hours while emergency services worked at the scene and was reopened at about 10.30am on Monday 15 April.

"Prior to this collision, the car was involved in a pursuit involving Kent Police. The Independent Office for Police Conduct (IOPC) is independently investigating the circumstances surrounding the police pursuit, following a mandatory referral by Kent Police to the IOPC.

"We'd continue to ask if anyone has dashcam footage from the incident or information, please contact us quoting incident number 1331 of Saturday 14 April.

Paying tribute to Ms Everett, her fiancé William Critchell described the 19-year-old as "a loving daughter, sister, fiancee and a wonderful friend to so many people".

On a post on a GoFundMe page raising money for the teenager's funeral, he said: "She loved riding her motorbike everywhere and couldn't go one night without riding around enjoying the freedom she had.

"We are all devastated by her loss. She was the most loving person to all her family and friends and would do anything she could to put a smile on their faces."

Mr Critchell says he is planning a memorial ride to pay tribute to his partner.

In an Instagram story, he explained that he had travelled to the scene of Ms Everett's death with her father and collected parts of her broken motorbike.

He wrote: "Lucky her dad found her motorcycle glove and will now bring it with him everywhere he goes. There are still no words for how much I miss her, no one deserves this type of pain."
