The family of ‘bullied’ schoolboy Sam Connor have told of their devastation after their ‘sensitive little soul’ lay down on tracks and was killed by a rush-hour train.
The tragic 14-year-old, who was struck by the train in front of 50 of his horrified classmates, was described as ‘a nice kid with a good sense of humour’.
Speaking to MailOnline Deborah Barrett, first wife of Sam’s father James, said: ‘It’s just so sad. It’s so awful, isn’t it? My three girls are Sam’s half sisters, they are all so upset.
