The parents of a 15-year-old girl killed in a road crash have paid tribute to their “beautiful” daughter.
C’mon. They could’ve said “clever”, “kind”, “loving” – or even “wonderful” or “brilliant” – and got away with it. But given that photography has been a viable science for over 150 years, saying something so obviously counterfactual is just weird.
Kudos to the Beeb for putting it in inverted commas…
