  1. I’ve had to comment as I’ve seen some awful comments with people attacking the kids over graffiti on the wall and things fo they not realise they are just KIDS grieving lost shocked not knowing what to do can I please make a suggestion to one of shaes framily or friends maybe put a post up get everyone to meet and have a few books that people can leave forever comments in just a thought is such a shame my heart thoughts and prayers are with both shae and Jack’s family and friends xxx people be respectful remember grief is hard enough in adults this has shook hundreds of kids lives x

  2. It’s a sad time we are in with this pandemic but it’s a much sadder time when any kid loses his life or her life irrelevant of anything that’s lead up to this
    I dont know the kid Shae but jack his mate who was in the car with him was one of my old boxers at Tameside Elite Boxing Academy up the road from this tradegy jack was a Bit of a Charachter and a Cheeky Chappy he moved gyms do a friends gym in Salford 2 years ago
    He was a nice kid but like us all when we were young dragged into groups and became a bit of a lad that’s the thing with growing up we all have to grow up irrelevant of how others feel but he was still a nice kid, I think your heart has to go out to the 16 lad and his family and friend who lost his life because that’s a young age to go hes not even experienced life and hopefully our old lad jack makes a speedy recovery
    I’m only glad no other kid or member of the public was killed during this police chase but that doesnt take it away from the fact that someones sons just died and someone elses son is in a serious condition, it is such a tragedy, I can’t speak on behalf of the police but what they must of seen at the Scene of the accident is not something any of us would of wanted to see two poor kids stuck in a Car Wreckage because that type of thing would live with you forever , its just so sad for all involved
    God bless them all from Steve and all the Team xxx
