GRIEVING loved ones of a teenager killed in a horror crash were today toasting their “shining star” after receiving her GCSE results.

Sixteen-year-old Sian Ryan died after a collision on the A14 on August 17 - just ten days before she was due to receive her exam grades.

Her results were hand delivered to her devastated family by Sian's form tutor and head of year at Copleston High School.

Distraught mum Chrissie Ryan said her daughter's achievements had provided the family with a lift as they struggle to come to terms with their loss.

“She did fantastically well,” said Mrs Ryan. “We are all very proud of her.

“We opened a couple of bottles of champagne to celebrate - she would have loved that.”
