It was with great sadness that I heard the news of the tragic death of a young girl from our town yesterday afternoon. As a parent, I know that this is your worst nightmare and I understand the pain that the family and their friends are going through and my heart goes out to them. The whole of Witney will join in offering them their condolences and support. I must also thank the emergency services for their prompt action in very difficult circumstances. They must have returned to their duties with a heavy heart. I will also be thinking today of the schools and how they will comfort our young people as they come to terms with their loss.
