A 12-year-old girl has died after a crash between a beach buggy and a pick-up truck near Newry, County Down.

She has been named by her former school as Nicole Fegan.

In a Facebook post, St Patrick’s Primary and Nursery School in Mayobridge, County Down, said they were “heartbroken” to learn of her sudden death.

“Nicole was such a special girl,” they said.

‘Loving family’

“We have memories of her kindness and her willingness to contribute to the life of the school through her musical ability, her sporting talents, her desire to do her best at all times and her beautiful smile.

“We offer our heartfelt condolences to her loving family.”

Police said the girl was a passenger in the buggy when it collided with the truck on Flagstaff Road at about 14:50 GMT on Saturday.

SDLP councillor Gillian Fitzpatrick told BBC News NI Nicole was “a great wee community girl” who was well known in the area.
