Paul Butler expresses sadness at death of Co Antrim teenager

24 February, 2006

Sinn Féin Councillor for Lagan Valley Paul Butler has this morning extended his sympathy to the family of a 15 year old girl who was knocked down and killed last night between the County Antrim villages of Crumlin and Glenavy.

Speaking this morning Cllr Butler said:

"It is my understanding that the young girl had been making her way from Crumlin to Glenavy when she was struck by a van.

"The road on which the girl had been walking home is extremely dangerous, has poor visibilty and does not have footpaths. This tragedy will no doubt come as a great shock by the people of both villages.

"I want to express my sympathy with the family at this difficult time." ENDS
