Tributes have been paid to a 26-year-old care worker from Northampton who died after taking a mix of recreational drugs and alcohol.

The girl's mother paid tribute to her daughter in a statement read out at the inquest.

The mother said: "She was a confident, happy child and did very well. She became very rebellious at high school and it was a constant battle keeping her on the straight and narrow.

"She started hairdressing after school, which she enjoyed, and then worked at a care home after she couldn't get enough hours hairdressing.

"She met her boyfriend, who she fell in love with. He made her very happy and secure. We believe she was finally settled.

"She was a wonderful young woman, kind and loving, head-strong, with an exceptional sense of humour."

The mother said the family was 'astounded' at the 'hundreds of people' who loved and paid tribute to Miss Bloxham after her death.

The mother added: "She was a hard-working woman. She would use drugs occasionally to relax and have fun. She had far too much to live for, we don't believe she took her own life. Recreational drug use put a timely end to everything."

Pathologist Dr Eldaly, who conducted the post-mortem, gave a cause of death of multiple drugs toxicity.

Senior coroner Anne Pember recorded a conclusion of accidental death.

The coroner said: "She should have had her whole life ahead of her. Sadly, she took a concoction of drugs and alcohol. I don't believe there was any attempt to take her own life."
