A British air stewardess plunged to her death from a high-rise building in Dubai.

Evelyn Clarke, 28, died from multiple injuries after she fell from a tower block window late on Sunday.

It is believed she had been on a night out with friends.

Miss Clarke worked for the airline Emirates and was living with friends in Dubai.

She is not thought to have had any personal problems and suicide is not suspected. Police are interviewing the last people to see her alive.

Within hours of the news reaching home, a Facebook memorial page had been set up where friends and colleagues posted pictures and remembered a ‘beautiful and bubbly’ girl.

Friend Kay Anderson wrote: ‘Oh Evelyn, I can’t believe you’re gone.

‘Loved the way you laughed in the face of anything bad that was thrown at you. You had life’s priorities in the right order, family and friends but most of all love.’

Another, Katrina Raine, said: ‘Life can be so cruel sometimes, such a loss of a beautiful person. Carry on partying up there glamorous girl.’

The tributes described a woman whose ‘big hair, big personality and big smile’ made her the life of every party.

Nickki McCabe said: ‘My sidekick and partner in crime for many years back in the day! . . . So so many good memories. You will be sorely missed.’

Yesterday at their home in Irvine, Ayrshire, relatives said the family were too upset to comment.

A neighbour on the quiet street where her parents Maryann and Edmund have lived for years said they were a ‘lovely family’.

The neighbour added: ‘They’re a lovely family and they will be absolutely heartbroken. Evelyn hadn’t lived with them for a while as she worked away but she visited and seemed to be always smiling.’

A Foreign Office spokesman said: ‘We are aware of the death of a British national in Dubai. We are providing consular assistance at this very difficult time.’

Miss Clarke’s death comes less than a month after British bride Abbie Emmett, 27, died after falling from a hotel window on honeymoon in the United Arab Emirates. Police say it was a tragic accident.

Such falls are an increasingly common problem in the high-rise city famed for its party scene, with an Indian man also reported to have died over the weekend.

Miss Clarke worked for the airline Emirates and was living with friends in Dubai.
