Well, following her death, for the rest of the Bank Holiday weekend, a police cordon had been placed at the scene. Also, the Stock City fans gave her a tribute in the 18th minute of their game against Norwich on Monday.

Talking about the news of Megan's death, Ricardo said, 

When I got the phone call to say that it was Meg, I was so shocked. I refused to believe it at first. 'Her life has been cruelly cut short in its prime. She'd only just turned 18. She had her whole life ahead of her. It's just heart-breaking.

He further added,

She had the kind of smile that meant you couldn't help smiling too. 'I've been a complete mess for a few days but I have to try to pull myself together for Meg.

For the cause of Megan's funeral, Eccles launched a crowdfunding campaign, collecting £2,300.

Talking of their first meeting, Eccles said that they met years ago when they lived in the same road and met every few days.
