A-level student Jess was waiting for a bus to travel to college on the A158 Burgh Road when she died at about 7am on Monday.

In a statement issued earlier today (Thursday) Lincoln College director of advanced education Kim Chafer said: “We are saddened to hear of the death of Jess Dunning who was studying A-Levels at Lincoln College and our thoughts are with her family and friends at this very sad time.

“Jess was a lovely girl; she worked hard, was a popular student and enjoyed her classes in Law. She was a key contributor in her Sociology class group and always had a laugh with her friends in class activities and debates. A bright light has been extinguished, she touched the lives of so many people at Lincoln College and she will be greatly missed.

“We are devastated by the news of Jess’ passing and we invite anyone at the college who has been affected by this tragic loss of life to speak to one of our counsellors who will be able to support them at this very difficult time.”

Yesterday a large number of tributes were left on The Standard’s Facebook page.

A large collection of floral tributes have been left to Jess by friends and family at the accident scene opposite Southview Leisure Park.

The video shows people leaving the tributes. It was taken with their permission.

A 53-year-old man from Spilsby was yesterday arrested on suspicion of causing death by careless driving. He was interviewed and later that day released on police bail.
