A 17-year-old boy from an area blighted by apparent young suicides has been found hanged. In the last two years, 24 young people have killed themselves in the Bridgend area. The teenager was discovered near the tennis club in the Newbridge Fields area of Bridgend, police said.
Since January 2007, 24 young people from the Bridgend area are believed to have killed themselves. A South Wales Police spokesman said: "Officers were called to a report of a sudden death of a 17-year-old male in the Bridgend area. "The death is not being treated as suspicious and a file is being prepared for the coroner."
The police spokesman said while there were similarities between recent sudden deaths in the county, there was no criminal link. "There are clearly similarities between recent sudden deaths in Bridgend, but South Wales Police can confirm that our investigations have by no means uncovered any criminal evidence that links them.
"It would therefore be inappropriate to comment any further in relation to this particular incident as any non criminal matters are for the coroner."
That's alright then I suppose..........
