The family of a woman who was killed in a crush at a nightclub described her today as "one in a million" and a "beautiful person".





Nabila Nanfuka, 22, a leisure and tourism student at Northampton University, died following an incident at the Lava and Ignite club in Northampton last night.



Speaking outside the family home in Neasden, north west London, her younger brother Fahad Msimbe said his sister was his "best friend".









Mr Msimbe said: "She affected so many people's lives and put other people first.



"She is one in a million really. She was my best friend, my sister.



"I still haven't come to terms with the fact she has passed away, it still hasn't sunk in.



"She was a really beautiful person in every way. She was really interested in the leisure and tourism industry, but she didn't have a specific role that she wanted to take when she finished (university).



"My mother is torn apart. She is finding it difficult like most mothers would."



He said it was good that all his mother's family and friends had come to the house to support her in her time of need.



He said that the family had been up to Northampton this morning and had spoken with police, adding: "They have started the investigation into why it happened and how it was allowed to happen as the circumstances in which it happened were unusual."
