Video: Lanterns for Abbey Parker and Bradley Cooper

First published in Echo News

Hundreds of lanterns filled the sky in a beautiful and moving tribute to an inseparable young couple. 

Friends and family gathered tonight to remember Abbey Parker, 17, and Bradley Cooper, 18, as they let off the lanterns in Compass Gardens in South Woodham Ferrers. 

The pair died in a collision in Lower Burnham Road in North Fambridge on Sunday. 

Friends described the pair as inseparable and Facebook and Twitter was inundated with tributes.

Abbey's family paid tribute to her as a "fun, bubbly and a wonderful daughter, sister, niece and granddaughter."

Bradley's family described him as "a kind and considerate friend, loyal brother, looking out for his sisters and the most wonderful son and treasured grandson anyone could ask for."
