Leicester woman killed after being hit by bus named

A woman who was involved in a fatal collision with a bus outside a city primary school last week has been named.

Melanie Inskip, 61, was on her way to work as a teaching assistant at Humberstone Junior School when the accident happened.

The collision took place at about 12.30pm on 12 March, at the junction of Abbotts Road North and Main Street in Humberstone.

She was taken to the Queen’s Medical Centre with a severe brain injury, where she subsequently died on Friday (15 March).

Melanie’s family have set up a JustGiving page to raise money for the Children’s Trust.

Her daughter Sarah Inskip said: “My mum sadly lost her life after suffering from a severe brain injury. She was always so passionate about children and that’s why she got into teaching.”

“Her legacy will go on in every pupil she taught, she will be sadly missed by all that had the privilege to meet her.”

The money raised will help go to children who have brain injuries and help them and their families.

If you have any information about the collision and have not yet spoken to police, please call them on 101.
