Tributes have poured in to a 16-year-old girl who died after she was hit by a train.
Mary Beary was killed on Tuesday night when she was hit by the train at Broxbourne railway station in Hertfordshire at around 10pm.
Ambulance and police crews battled to save the youngster but she was pronounced dead at the scene.
Mary was well known in the Irish traveller community and her death has led to an outpouring of grief.
The 16-year-old was in a relationship with Jerry Saunders, whose older brother Quhey Saunders, 20, was beaten to death with a plaster’s whisk at the M25 Cobham Services in 2017.
In a tribute to his beloved girlfriend, Jerry wrote: ‘The only girl I ever loved I love you my Mary my hearts broke in a million bits I’m going with you almost 2 year on and off I was with you all day yesterday I’ll never forget memories we had together I love you my baby I’ll see you again.’
The tragedy comes two years after his 20-year-old brother Quhey was killed by their cousins.
Quhey had attended an all-weekend wedding party in Wales when his cousins Simon Baker, 22, and Mikey Coyle, 21, beat him following a brawl in the busy service station.
He died in hospital three days later but the pair avoided jail after telling a jury they had acted in self-defence.
Caroline Rocky, from Ireland, who is Mary’s second cousin, shared her sympathy to the rest of their family.
Caroline wrote: ‘I just wanted to say sorry to my Uncle Donie, Eileen, cousin Dan and his wife Pamela and her brothers and all the family for the loss of such a beautiful young girl.
‘God only takes the best.’
Sharyn Ward added: ‘Very sad to hear this. May she rest in peace beautiful angel and praying for her poor mommy and daddy and family.’
Daisy Appleton, who also knew the teen, added: ‘Mary was a very young stunning girl. She was very well known around the community and she was very well liked.
‘She will be sadly missed by her poor boyfriend Jerry and her family. I will miss you Mary and will keep you in my prayers.’
A spokesperson for the British Transport Police said: ‘This incident is not currently being treated as suspicious and a file will be prepared for the coroner.’
