Merseyside Police have released the following statement and photo on behalf of the family of Jessica Baker, the 15-year-old girl who sadly died in a collision on the M53 when traveling on a school bus to West Kirby Grammar School on Friday 29 September. 

The family of 15-year-old Jessica Baker who sadly died following a road traffic collision on the M53 in Wirral on Friday 29th September would like to thank everyone for their very kind comments and offers of support during this extremely difficult time. 

Jessica was a talented and dedicated climber who competed over the last seven years of her life across the UK representing both the North West and Wales.

Jessica loved all sports and chose GCSE PE as one of her options, but her overriding passion was for both indoor and outdoor climbing. 
Despite being a teenager, Jessica was able to communicate with everyone she came into contact with regardless of their age. She was often seen offering support to fellow climbers on how to achieve a problem/route they were trying to complete. 

Jessica was planning to explore a career in sport in some way and was due to begin her coaching qualifications later this year towards this goal. 

In memory of Jessica an online ‘MuchLoved’ loved page has been set up to allow people to share their pictures/videos and thoughts of Jessica for the family to keep.

You can also donate on behalf of Jessica Baker to “Climbers Against Cancer”, a charity that was close to her heart, HERE.
