Mrs Erskine said: “Firstly my sympathy is with this young girl’s family and friends. It is a tragic loss of life and we will all keep this family in our prayers at this time.

"It is every parent’s worst nightmare. We must ensure no family has to endure such pain, as previous families have gone through in this constituency in the past.

"Today I met with the EA to discuss home to School transport and to seek assurances that all was being done to ensure pupil safety, particularly in our rural area. Pupil safety is paramount and we must make sure tragedy does not come to the door of another family.
