Brit backpacker, 21, plunges 100ft to death from clifftop selfie spot in Australia

A British model has died after falling 98ft to her death from a cliff at a popular selfie spot in Sydney.

Madalyn Davis, 21, from Lincoln, England, had been in Australia since last year after deciding to starting a new life there.

The 21-year-old had been at a party in Vaucluse on Saturday night when she went to the nearby Diamond Bay cliffs with seven friends at about 6.30am.

They are thought to have climbed over a fence to sit on the edge of the cliff to watch the sunrise before she plunged to her death.

The Diamond Bay cliffs are a popular selfie spot with tourists. 

Her family desperately tried to track her down after failing to hear from her all day on Sunday.

One concerned family member wrote online: "Anyone seen Maddie? Not been able to get hold of her please get in touch if you were out with her last night".

But by this morning, Madalyn's death was confirmed by another family member.

Heartbroken family and friends paid tribute to the young model, remembering her as a 'free spirit' who was 'beautiful inside and out'.

One person wrote: "I really don't know how to process this Maddie, last time we saw each other was three years ago and now you are gone."

Another wrote: "I will never ever forget the times we shared together the giggle fits we had in town. I will forever miss you, angel."

A third added: 'It was a pleasure knowing you Maddie, you were beautiful inside as well as outside.
