Train death teenagers 'talented and hard-working'

The teenagers who died after being hit by a train in Hertfordshire were "talented, hard-working and well-respected", their head teacher has said.

Charleigh Disbrey, aged 15, and Mert Karaoglen, who was 18, were struck close to Elstree & Borehamwood station at about 21:00 BST on Monday.

They were students at Hertswood Academy in Borehamwood, where Peter Gillett paid tribute to them on Tuesday.
