A P2 pupil from Primate Dixon Primary School in Coalisland has passed away while on holiday with her family in Lithuania.

The little girl was thought to have been visiting family in her native country, when tragedy occurred on Saturday.

It is not yet clear how Vanesa Raskeviciute lost her life, but a spokesperson from the school told the Irish News: “All the children and families of the Primate Dixon Primary School, along with all our staff and governors, wish to extend their deepest sympathy and prayers to the family of Vanesa, much loved pupil in our school.”
