Four people arrested on suspicion of being concerned in the supply of drugs after the death of a 15-year-old girl have been released pending further investigation.

Emergency services were called to Caerphilly Mountain Road in the early hours of Sunday morning after concerns were raised about the girl's health.

The teenager, who was from Caerphilly, died shortly after paramedics arrived. Her family are being supported by specialist officers.

At this time enquiries are ongoing and the investigation in this young girl’s death are still in the early stages.

During our work we will be looking into whether any substances have been a contributing factor into this incident however; this is just one of our lines of enquiry at this time.

A post mortem examination will be carried out to determine the exact cause of death. Our thoughts are with her family and friends at this time.
