She was airlifted to the Royal Sussex County Hospital and died four days later.

Claudia was a former student at William Parker Sixth Form and a team leader at the Co-op.

On May 20, 2020, people lined the streets of Hastings to pay respects to Claudia as her funeral procession made its way through the town.

Due to social distancing measures at the time, only her family members could attend her funeral.

Her family described her as a ‘beautiful and bright individual who gave so much more to others’.

The CPS said the case against Woollett has been adjourned until February 21 when he will be sentenced.
