Teenager killed in lorry collision to be honoured by army cadets

An army cadet detachment will rename its hut after a cadet killed in a collision with a lorry last year.

Eliza Bill, 16, died in a collision with a Scania lorry in Osbournby on December 3.

She was a member of the Billingborough Army Cadet Detachment, which will hold a special ceremony on Wednesday as it renames its hut, in Birthorpe Road, The Eliza Bill Army Cadet Hut.

A detachment spokesman said: “In order to commemorate this change and to remember the life of Eliza, Billingborough army cadets are having a renaming ceremony for the hut followed by an open night, from 7pm.

“Members of the public are welcome to attend this community event and get an insight into how the Army Cadet Force really becomes a second family for everyone who is part of it.”

Eliza was described by her family as “the most beautiful soul” who “touched hearts”.
