DUP Westminster candidate David Simpson has extended his heartfelt sympathies to the family and friends of the young 15 year old girl who tragically died in the woodland area of Corcrain last night.
Spokesman on Business Innovation & Skills and Environment, Food & Rural Affairs. Member of the DEFRA Committee.
Commenting Mr Simpson said
"My prayers are very much with the young girl's family and friends. Utterly tragic. I know the community well and I know they will pull together and help where they can.
To hear of a life ending in such circumstances is horrific for everyone but none more than family and friends. A young life cut down so early. The scene is one of tragedy and devastation.
I have been working with statutory agencies to bring about investment in this area to help transform it and to help with youth intervention.
I have spoken with the PSNI and youth agencies to ensure we have support services for those who require immediate counselling and feel this great loss."
