In an emotional statement her family said: ‘She was determined and strong and had such grace in navigating the most difficult year of her life with such acceptance, optimism and vulnerability.

‘Quickly making a name for herself as likeable and easygoing, Sian’s generous spirit and natural beauty saw her quickly snapped up as a model to watch in her home country,’ they added.

Her modelling agency also shared their ‘deep sadness’ at the news of Scale’s tragic death.

‘Sian was a bright and unique light in our world who unapologetically marched to her own beat. We will all miss her more than words can express, and her incredible work in pictures will immortalise her forever,’ the agency said.
