French Police have prepared a 200-page file in their investigation into the death of a High Wycombe 16-year-old who died while on a family holiday.

Apryl Scorer, who was a Year 11 student at Sir William Ramsay, tragically died while on holiday in France on August 13 last year.

At a pre-inquest review at Beaconsfield Coroners Court today (Wednesday), assistant coroner Ian Wade told the court that he was not aware if French police had made any progress in their investigations since the last hearing in December.

He said: “The French are conducting their own investigation. It’s not entirely clear what we can expect from that.

“I am very sorry we can’t do any more. It’s a sad fact of life that when someone dies overseas, we are dependent on our colleagues in that country for cooperation.

“I am sure the authorities in France are doing what they can.”

However, Apryl’s grandmother, who was at the hearing, informed the coroner that the family had heard from the French police that the findings of their investigation had been put together, and could soon make their way to the UK.

Addressing the coroner, she said: “There is a 200-page file from the police - they have really been on the ball.

“We thought they hadn’t been doing anything but they have really tried and produced these documents and now it’s just a case of getting it back to England.”

A talented dancer, Apryl was described by her school headteacher as “bubbly” and “amazing”.

The teenager had aspirations to become a counsellor and was passionate about supporting people with mental health issues.

A GoFundMe page set up after her death helped to raise more than £9,000 for her funeral costs.

Speaking to the court this afternoon, Mr Wade announced that a further pre-inquest review will be held in September.
