A tragic mum has died after mistaking a hangover for an incurable brain tumour.

Mother-of-three Lizzie Parker had been for a night out with friends and started to suffer from migraines, before being given the devastating diagnosis weeks later.

She was first diagnosed with Grade 4 Glioblastoma in May 2019 after her migraines persisted, Hull Live reports.

Just three days after her diagnosis the 39-year-old, from Hull, underwent a craniotomy to remove the tumour and has bravely fought the illness over the last two years.

Her heartbroken husband Paul broke the news of her sad death on social media.

He said: "I am posting on social media for the first time with deepest sorrow and heartbreaking news of our shining light, my beautiful wife Lizzie.

"She pulled on her positive pants and defied the odds and lead 'Team Parker' to success in the challenge that faced us all.

"So very strong and brave to the end, we truly believe we did not lose the battle, Lizzie's light is needed somewhere else and her time came yesterday and she fell into a peaceful sleep.

"Lizzie touched so many lives and whilst you will want to express your condolences, please bear in mind we may not be able to respond to you all.
