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…
