Caoimhin Cassidy who died last year in Londonderry

The heartbroken family of a teenager who perished inside a burning car in Londonderry one year ago has called for those who were with him to come forward and explain why they ran away and left him to die.

Caoimhin Cassidy (18) died on June 1, 2019 when the stolen Mazda car he and others were travelling in ignited after it crashed into a tree in the Galliagh area of the city.

A post-mortem examination showed Caoimhin had minor injuries, and was most likely alive before the fire claimed his life.
