Delia White, her mother who hails from Greenford, said to The Mirror that her daughter didn’t appear upset or angry after she left. There was nothing that would have caused her to run.

She said, “My seven-year old son is also here. I’m trying to be strong for him.” “At the moment, I don’t even have the energy to express how I feel.”
