The Gofundme page, started by Janice Devlin from Coalisland is called: 'Three greenvale Angels Lauren,Connor and Morgan'.

She hopes to help their distraught families with funeral costs.

Teenagers Morgan Barnard and Lauren Bullock, both 17-years, died along with 16-year-old Connor Currie in a tragic incident outside the Cookstown nightclub on Saint Patrick’s Day.

The fundraising appeal

Already £1,740 of a £2000 goal has been donated.

Earlier young witnesses to a crush that killed three teenagers were told they will not face police action for being underage.

Police and prosecutors made the pledge in an effort to get more teenagers to come forward to speak to officers about the tragedy.

Giving an update on the police investigation, Police Service of Northern Ireland (PSNI) Detective Chief Superintendent Raymond Murray said it was fortunate more were not killed in the crush.

Books of condolence have opened across Northern Ireland in memory of the three teenagers who died.
