Ambulance staff across the Midlands have mourned the loss of Kelly Davis, who is understood to have died on Wednesday night.

West Midlands Ambulance Service emergency service director Nathan Hudson was one of those to take to Twitter to pay tribute to Ms Davis.

He said: "We have lost a well respected, much loved member of our family.

"Words can not express the devastation my staff are feeling at present.

"We are here if you need anything RIP Kel, if only you could see now how much you were loved."

Ms David, who lived in Tamworth and studied Biomedical Science at the University of Wolverhampton and Paramedic Science at Coventry University, is believed to have worked shifts at West Midlands Ambulance Service's Erdington hub.

Others to leave tributes included West Midlands Ambulance Service paramedic and clinical team mentor Natalie Greaves.

She said: "Sad news today. Stand down and rest in peace."

Another, West Midlands Ambulance Service paramedic and clinical team mentor Rob Moore said he would remain silent on Twitter out of respect.

He said: "Out of respect for a fallen colleague, I will be silent on here for the rest of this week, with the exception of any colleagues who need to talk. Our 999 family has become a little smaller."

Since it was set up on September 20, a total of £3758 has been raised – more than 1,200 per cent of the initial £300 target.

The campaign has been supported by 247 people, with many also leaving messages alongside their donations.

Paula Martin said: "Such a tragic loss of such a wonderful lady, Kelly will be massively missed by so many. Gone much too soon. Sleep tight Kelly."

Another, Sarah Downes, said: "I will forever treasure the beautiful memories I have of you. You were always a kind hearted soul with such a beautiful smile, sleep tight Kelly."
