In a statement, Holly’s mother said: “Due to tragic circumstances our beautiful, loving, kind daughter has been taken from us far too soon.

"Holly was vivacious, vibrant and a lively soul wherever she went. She was a loving sister with a great sense of humour.

"A huge hole has been left in our lives and can never be filled. She will forever be my girl and I will miss her for the rest of my life."

Road closures were put in place between Baldock and Biggleswade whilst officers dealt with the incident, and the road has since re-opened.

Detective Sergeant James Thorne, from the Bedfordshire, Cambridgeshire and Hertfordshire Road Policing Unit, said: “First and foremost, our thoughts are with Ms Foster’s family at this tragic time.

“We are continuing to investigate the circumstances around this collision and would urge anyone who witnessed it, or saw a pedestrian on the A1 before the incident or has any dashcam footage to get it touch with us to help us establish what happened.”

Enquiries into the incident are ongoing and anyone with any information can visit the Bedfordshire Police online reporting centre, or call 101 quoting Operation Firbeck.
