Detective Superintendent Richard Campbell said: “I would ask witnesses to this incident who have not yet spoken to police to come and talk to us.

“I can understand that there may be some reluctance to come and speak to police if you are underage, but please do not be concerned. We are investigating the deaths of three young people – that is our focus.”

“If you have video footage on your phone I would ask that you please bring it with you, as we have the ability to download it. This footage could prove vital to our investigation.”

In the post on PSNI Facebook officers advise teenagers who were present: "Please do not post any videos or photographs online" and "Please keep comments on this post sensitive".
