The parents of Caroline Dickinson yesterday said their lives had changed forever with her murder at a youth hostel in Brittany. In a statement made through the Rev Tim Newcombe, Vicar of Launceston, John and Sue Dickinson said: "We have lost a quiet, loving and gifted daughter. Caroline's death has robbed us however, not only of a daughter, but of someone who had already become our very best friend.

"Caroline had so much to look forward to and so many plans for the future which we were doing all we could to help her fulfil. Though the circumstances in which Caroline died are a revelation of real evil, the care, love and support we have received from everyone in Launceston and far away is a great help which we really value. We are very grateful to headmaster Alan Wroath and the staff and pupils at Launceston College, to the British Embassy, the French police and the people of Pleine Fougeres for all they have done for us."
