A teenage drug dealer has been jailed for supplying MDMA that killed a 14-year-old girl.

Bethany Devlin-McCrone died at her home in Wirral two hours after taking the drug in July 2018.

The loss of Bethany has had a devastating effect on her family and friends and no sentence, however long, can ever bring her back.

People taking these drugs don’t know what’s in them, where they’ve come from or what effects they may have.

– Detective Inspector Paul Parry

19 year old Connor Parrish was found guilty of supplying cocaine and MDMA and possession of Class A and B drugs.

He was sentenced to four years.
