A 19 year old man arrested in connection with the sudden death of a 15 year old girl in Portadown has been released pending further enquiries.

Police are investigating if Caitlin White had taken drugs on Saturday before she collapsed. 

The schoolgirl was unconscious in woods in Corcraine at around 6pm and later died at Craigavon Area Hospital.

Her auntie Claire said that Caitlin's mother Teresa "is in bits as you can imagine, she's not fit to speak to anyone.

"Caitlin was her world. She only had one child. The family is completely devastated.

"The people who know and care about Caitlin, know who she really was, and what she was really like and that's all that matters to us. We don't care about the others."

A 17 year old is still in police custody.
