The family of tragic Co Down teenager Tara Wright will hold a private funeral service for their beloved daughter and sister today.

The 17-year-old call centre worker from the Dromore area was found dead outside Belfast City Hospital shortly before 3am on Sunday.

Four men have been questioned by police in connection with the tragic incident.

A family notice described Tara as a “dearly loved daughter” and “much loved sister” who was “adored and cherished by her whole family”.

The popular teenager will be laid to rest following a private committal service.
