Investigations into the death of a High Wycombe student who died on holiday are continuing.

A pre-inquest review (PIR) was held last Thursday (December 3) for the death of Apryl Scorer, who sadly died on August 13 while on a family holiday in France.

The talented young dancer, who was in Year 11 at Sir William Ramsay, was described by her heartbroken loved ones as “beautiful inside and out” and by her school head teacher as “amazing” and “bubbly”.

The 16-year-old reportedly wanted to be a counsellor, supporting people with mental health issues. Her death left her loved ones devastated, with a GoFundMe page raising more than £9,300 for funeral costs.

At the PIR at Beaconsfield Coroner’s Court, Buckinghamshire senior coroner Crispin Butler said there was “no significant progress to report from the French investigation”, adding that while there was a lack of jurisdiction to “force matters”, “we do have a duty to conduct a full and fearless investigation nevertheless”.

He said the investigation would take longer as a result of matters being “very much reliant on family and the FCO [Foreign and Commonwealth Office].”

The court was also told there were indications from Apryl’s mother that she may have had a cardiac anomaly but they are waiting for results from further blood testing for a genetic heart condition, and are getting tested themselves, her father indicated.

Mr Butler said an FCO update indicated that a French investigation is ongoing and there will be quarterly updates.

Another PIR is expected to be held on February 25, 2021, at 9.30am.
