Massacre victim Carly Lovett was killed by a grenade blast during the terrorist attack in Tunisia, reports have emerged.

The 24-year-old from Gainsborough was among the first victims to be named following the hotel bloodbath at the beach resort of El Kantaoui, north of Sousse.

Miss Lovett was a former student at the Univeristy of Lincoln and it is understood she was on holiday with friends and family.

Miss Lovett was a photographer at e-commerce company Fizzco, who are based in Fillingham.

She became separated from her fiance, Liam Moore, during the bloodbath on the beach and ran back to what she thought was the safety of her hotel.

But she died when the lobby area was blown up shortly after the shootings.

Liam, also 24, survived and called his parents Christopher and Helen to tell them he was safe, promising to call back once he found Carly.

The two got engaged last Christmas after dating since they were 14.

It was reported that Carly’s divorced parents, John and Joanne, are too upset to comment on the tragedy, and police officers were stationed at both their homes.
