Teachers described Lucy as a vivacious and talented girl of great spirit and style who had a wide circle of friends.

A statement said her death had shocked and greatly saddened the whole school.

Lucy's mother Jane, the elder daughter of the actor and film director, is missing presumed dead after the disaster, as is her paternal grandmother, Jane Holland.

Lucy's 17-year-old sister Alice survived, but is in a serious condition in a hospital in Singapore.

Her father Michael and brother Sam were unhurt.
