More than a dozen of Lily’s family members were sitting in the public gallery this morning.

Lily, who didn’t know Haines, had been partying with friends before her body was found in the early hours of the morning on December 17 2021.

In the hours before her death, she was captured on CCTV at Paddles nightclub, Pembroke.

The pair left the venue separately before meeting again nearby.

Lily’s body was found in the water at the beauty spot at 4.12am.

She was pronounced dead at 6.02am.

Police later released images of Lily taken hours before she died in a bid to encourage witnesses to come forward.

Her parents released a heartbreaking tribute after the tragedy.

They said: “Lily was a kind and caring daughter who will be deeply missed by everyone.

“The family are very thankful to all of Lily’s friends for their support.”

Family friend Byron John said: “Lily was a sweet and lovely young woman, well spoken and very grown up for her years.
