Angeline Bryan, 47, suffered a fatal head injury after falling off a privately-owned e-scooter on concrete.

Ms Bryan, who is also a grandmother to six, was helping a friend move house in Nottingham when the incident happened.

At the time, she had no idea that the fall had caused a head injury, having got up and carried on as usual, her eldest daughter, Jaymi Andrews, said.

Over the next few days, she complained of a headache getting increasingly worse and began acting strangely.

Ms Bryan's friend called an ambulance on the evening of the third day but she was not taken to hospital because "they thought she was drunk".

She continued to get worse the following day so her friend called an ambulance again and this time paramedics took her to hospital.

"They gave her scans and found out she had four bleeds on the brain, caused by the fall from the scooter," Ms Andrews said.

"They performed surgery to try to drain the bleed and put her in a coma and kept scanning her to see what was happening."

Ms Bryan went on to suffer a massive stroke and was unable to recover, despite being put on a life support machine.

Paying tribute to her mum, Ms Andrews, said: "It was such a shock to us all.

"This devastating accident has left us all heartbroken and lost.

"Mum was our queen. She was there for all of us and her grandchildren. Everyone who knew our mum knew she was there for everyone, and would put strangers before herself every single time.

"Mum made things happen, it didn’t matter what anyone was struggling with, she would figure out a way to help anyone whose paths crossed.

"She was a funny, kind and beautiful person inside and out and she will be so missed by so many people."

Ms Andrews has since set up a GoFundMe page to raise money for her mother's funeral and wake.

"We so desperately want to give her a nice send off, and as a family we are asking for donations towards her funeral and wake," she said.

"Thank you for reading and from the bottom of our hearts we appreciate everything, no matter how big or small!"

Ms Bryan's children, aged between five and 29, are now being cared for by the older siblings as well as other relatives in Milton Keynes.
