23rd October 2019

Boys at a prominent Southport school are being offered expensive private therapy after witnessing a horrendous accident on Monday.

Birkdale High pupils who were passengers on an Arriva bus when it was involved in a tragic accident on Monday morning are now being offered private counselling following the ordeal.

Police are not treating the incident as suspicious after a young Male was struck and killed by a bus on Lord Street on Monday.

OTS understands the school headmaster has urgently sought private counselling firms to offer trauma therapy to the pupils who witnessed the tragic incident.

Police are thought to still be investigating the circumstances surrounding the event.

Anyone with any information should call 101.
