Previously, a school spokesman said: “It will take us all a very long time to come to terms with the loss and the manner in which it happened.

“Alongside our colleagues at Cambridge Primary School, where both Coby-Jay and Skylar attended before coming to Furness Academy, we are all deeply shocked and saddened that two bright and beautiful young people have had their lives tragically ended.

“Our school communities have forever been changed.”

He said the news had rocked ‘not only our school, but the entire Barrow community’.
