A YOUNG mum has died after collapsing in a supermarket car park.

Emotional messages were left in what has now become a car park shrine to the 33-year-old, following the tragedy on Tuesday afternoon, at the Asda store, in Marina Way, Hartlepool at around 1.30pm.

It is believed the woman, who has not yet been named, collapsed in the car park after leaving the store and three ambulances were immediately called.

The woman was rushed to the University Hospital of North Tees, in Stockton, before being moved to James Cook University Hospital, in Middlesbrough.

But after she lost her fight for life, a car parking space set aside for parent and toddler parking has been covered in flowers with emotional messages left by family members.

One tribute said: “To our mummy, we will always love you and never forget you.

“You were the light of our life.

“Love forever.”

Another, thought to be from the woman’s partner, said: “I will always love and miss you.”

Another said: “RIP I will never forget you, xx.”

Another tribute said: “Forever in our thoughts, all our love.”

In another message, the words read: “Didn’t know you but your passing was tragic.”

The woman is thought to have been with a small child, her mum and sister, when the tragedy happened.

Asda Hartlepool declined to comment when contacted by the Hartlepool Mail today.
