Police have charged a 16-year-old boy with the murder of a teenage girl whose body was found dumped in a park.

Viktorija's family paid tribute to the teenager, saying she was "was like a little angel" and "she made our lives so colourful and full of meaning".

'We can't believe she has left us at such a young age. We will never forget you our sweetheart.

A 16-year-old boy from Wolverhampton has been charged with her murder, West Midlands Police said, and is due before magistrates in Dudley on Monday.

"You will be living in our hearts, soul and mind forever. Goodbye our little angel", they said.

West Park in Wolverhampton remains closed while police complete a comprehensive forensic examination of the area.

Viktorija, known as Tori, had been reported missing by her family only the day before.
