Sabina Nessa vigil: Sister breaks down as she pay tribute to London teacher

Sabina Nessa’s sister broke down in tears as she paid tribute to the primary school teacher, saying ‘she left this world far too early’ at a vigil in southeast London.

Police estimate that more than 500 people packed into a small square for the candlelit vigil where tears were shed in memory of teacher Sabina Nessa.

Speeches were given beside a giant photograph of the 28-year-old smiling proudly in her graduation gown, as her family sat nearby and wept while watching the proceedings as darkness fell.
