Keane 'was our princess who dreamed of being PM'

The family and friends of 12-year-old Keane Wallis-Bennett, who died after a wall collapsed at Liberton High School in Edinburgh yesterday, issued the following statement:

Keane will be sadly missed by all her family and friends.

She was our princess who dreamed of being Prime Minister.

But failing that, a beautician.

She loved her girlfriends and her days out shopping with lunches and all things girly.

She recently attended her first under 18s disco and loved every second of it and was excited to be going to see One Direction in concert.

The family request that they be left alone to grieve while they come to terms with the loss of Keane. They will be making no further comment to the media.
