Touching tributes are paid to Jill thumbnailEmergency services at the scene of the fatal accident at Railway Place in Coleraine on Friday night.

TOUCHING tributes have been paid to a woman who suffered fatal injuries in a tragic incident in a Coleraine car-park.
Much-loved daughter, aunt and sister Jill Elder was involved in a collision at Railway Place, near the town's train station, on Friday night (February 24).
Emergency services were alerted at around 9 pm following reports of an accident involving a red Vauxhall Corsa.
Ms Elder, 43, was born and raised in the Garvagh area but had recently been living in Kilrea.
Red and yellow roses were left at the scene of the collision which was sealed off while forensics officers searched the car-park for clues.
PUP Assembly candidate Councillor Russell Watton, who knew Jill and her family, said: "This is an absolute tragedy. I spoke to Jill just a week ago while I was out canvassing in Garvagh. I wish to express my heartfelt sympathy to her entire family circle.
“I've been told that Jill had made her way to the car-park from the railway station after getting off a train. My heart also goes out to the driver of the car involved who, I believe, was a young employee at nearby business premises.
