Teenage girls' Clyde River deaths 'were avoidable'

The deaths of two girls who jumped from the Erskine Bridge could have been avoided if the care home where they were living had taken better precautions, an inquiry has found.

Niamh Lafferty, 15, and Georgia Rowe, 14, plunged into the Clyde River in an apparent suicide pact in October 2009.

Both girls were residents at the Good Shepherd care centre in Renfrewshire.
