Rebecca Youens has penned an emotional tribute to her 4-year-old daughter Violet-Grace, who was killed in a hit-and-run six months ago.

The girl died in her mum's arms last March after being hit by a stolen car that mounted the pavement, in the UK.

"My heart aches as it is just so broken. Violet should be starting her very first day of reception class in the morning, and I should have a very excited little girl tucked up safe in her bed, instead 'our forever 4-year-old angel' is up in heaven," the mum wrote on Facebook.

She included two photos, one of little Violet-Grace's first day of nursery school and a second one of the rose from the Beauty and the Beast movie, the last film they watched together.


The rose sits neatly on Violet's bedside table, near her water bottle and hair ties.

"I have recycled her very first day of Eccleston Mere Nursery photo to pop on as a marker of what should be her first day tomorrow in 'big school'," the heartbroken mother wrote.

"On the Monday of the week of her passing we watched our final movie at the cinema together which was Beauty & The Beast," she wrote.

"This rose signifies that my love for Violet will never fade and I miss her so much every day; my beautiful 'Belle' - beautiful inside and out."

Little Violet ended up saving two lives by donating her kidneys and pancreas after her passing.

Her mum also added a plea for more organ donors in her Facebook post.
